Conviviale Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a full-bodied red wine made from grapes from aged vines, offering ample flavour and great value. Its nose is ripe with cherry and plum aromas and hints of spice. The palate is overflowing with notes of Morello cherry, cassis and vibrant bramble. Firm tannins and a fresh finish make it a perfect match with Bolognese sauce pasta.

About the Producer

Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. The stated aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties. All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's winemaking team of Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese - assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW. They source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, with whom they have built long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.

Vineyard and Winery

Produced from selected parcels of Montepulciano grapes, from low yielding 30 to 50 year old vines in the Chieti province of Abruzzo.  Fermentation took place in small batches between 28 and 30C using natural yeasts.  The skins were left in contact with the fermenting wine for 10 days.  After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred to Adria’s cellars and matured in a combination of large Slavonian oak casks and French oak barriques for 6-8 months.
