Fantini Organic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2021

Get to know: Fantini Organic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Tasting Note

An intense and fruity red with aromas of wild blackberries, plum, black cherry and vanilla. Ripe and round on the palate with a little food friendly tannic grip on an earthy finish.

Try this with antipasti, aubergine lasagne or mushroom arancini.

Kate Says

"I've got a lot of time for good, honest reds like this. Montepulciano is a reliable pasta partner and this organic example from Fantini has all the ripe berry fruit I'm looking for and a bit of spice to give it some depth."

Producer Info

The Fantini group was founded in 1994 by Valentino Sciotti with the aim of producing top-quality wine from Abruzzo. The enterprise was so successful that the group expanded further south in Italy and its islands. Today the Fantini group includes Cantina Diomede, Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Tufarello, Zabù and Cantina Atzei, among others. Acclaimed winemaker and consultant Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.

Fantini is their flagship winery, producing wines from vineyards based in the northern part of Abruzzo, where ripeness and freshness combine in the wines. All the wines made from Montepulciano have this variety's hallmark colour and intensity but with a balance and accessibility often lacking in wines from this region.

The fruit for this wines comes from the vines grown on a pergola system in the clay-limestone soils of Ortona and San salvo on the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. Gently crushed and destemmed, and fermented in stainless steel for 15 days.
