A deep ruby red in colour, with lifted notes of dark fruits, plums and cherries with a hint of mocha. This wine has soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish.
A perfect pasta partner.
Il Faggio is made at one of the region’s best co-operatives in northern Abruzzo. The aim is to capture in the bottle the power and intensity of the Montepulciano grape, together with a lift and freshness that is seldom found in wines from this area. The name ‘Il Faggio’ derives from the fabulous beech trees that proliferate in this area, especially in the Abruzzo national park.
The grapes for this wine were grown on a mixture of hillside sites and flatter vineyard plots near the sea, surrounding the town of San Salvo in Abruzzo. Cultivated in the Guyot method, the vines are located at 100-150 metres above sea level.
This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans
