Montepulciano is like a forgotten little brother; taking a back seat to its big brothers Sangiovese and Barbera. Montepulciano is inky-purple in color with scents of black cherry, earthiness and tobacco. Under all of the generous fruit is a solid structure that allows this wine to age gracefully for several years.
