Il Faggio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2019
This Montepulciano has lifted perfumes and is soft and supple with a delicious chocolate-cherry finish.
Intense red/black in colour so characteristic of the Montepulciano grape variety. Concentrated black fruit and coffee nose, with more fruit perfumes in this vintage and less mocha. On the palate it is intense and chocolatey, with a chocolate cherry character supported by robust but supple tannins. Its screwcap closure protects and preserves its lovely perfumes.
Il Faggio is made by Alana McGettigan, at one of the region's best co-operatives in the northern part of the Abruzzi. The aim is to capture in the bottle the power and intensity of the grape, together with a lift and freshness which is seldom found. The name, Il Faggio, derives from the fabulous beech trees which proliferate in this area, especially in the Abruzzo national park.
