More info

Made from Montepulciano variety grown in the Abruzzo region on Italy's Adriatic coast. The Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC title was created in 1968 and covers a vast area of eastern Abruzzo. The vines are trained on the traditional overhead trellis system called Pergola Abruzzese and are grown in clay and limestone soils.

The grapes were carefully selected in the vineyard. Extended skin maceration was followed by fermentation, which took place in temperature controlled tanks. The wine was aged for four to six months in 25 hectolitre oak casks and a further four months in bottle, prior to release.

Bove

Since the Bove winery was founded in 1930 it has become one of the best producers in the region perfectly balancing tradition and innovation with quality and value. The estate comprises 60 hectares of well located vineyards under the watchful eye of oenologist Dott. Vittorio Festa. The low yields, rigorous grape selection, up-to-date vinification techniques and refined ageing of their red wines in oak barrels ensures a growing reputation for top-class wines.

The Bove style showcases elegant, fragrant white wines and well-textured, mellow reds delivering good typicity from the native Montepulciano grape - a vine of undeniable distinction that can make wines of irresistible character with a capacity to age and supple, smooth wines eminently drinkable when young.
