Cornacchia Montepulciano d'AbruzzoRegular price $14.99
The Cornacchia family has been bottling wine on this estate in northern Abruzzo since the late 1800's. Winemakers Filippo and Caterina Cornacchia are the latest generation to work on the property, which has a milder climate than surrounding areas due to a cool sea breeze that blows up the Tronto river valley to their vineyards. This wine is medium to full bodied with a generous mouthfeel and black currant and cherry on the palate. It is intense and concentrated. This wine is begging to be paired with something off the grill.
