Pairings: The high tannin content in Montepulciano means that it is best when paired with rich and fatty foods. Montepulciano goes extremely well with meaty pizzas and fatty beef burgers. Other meats that fare well with this wine include roast pork, beef brisket, and shepherds pie. A great wine for cold weather, it goes well with the richer vegetables on offer during the colder months. Baked potatoes, mushrooms, beetroot, and tomatoes.
Cheese Pairings: Asiago, Parmesan, Paderno, and mature Cheddar.
About This Wine: Made with 100% Montepulciano grapes grown organically in the Abruzzo region in Italy. This wine is dense and full bodied with intense aromas of dry fruits, cherry and spice - with a leather note on the finish.
