Era Organic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC
This Montepulciano is made from 100% organically grown grapes, harvested by hand in September and October. The vineyard is located in the area of Chieti, in Abruzzo. The moderating breezes from the sea allow for perfect ripening, and the thermal variation between day and night serves to enhance the aromatics of the wine.
The name ERA was chosen because it means an important historical period. This era is that of environmental awareness and an active desire to protect and preserve our environment for future generations through organic farming and production. ERA also refers to the Italian verb "was" as in, how it was. The turning back to more ecological farming practices of the past before the invention of herbicides and pesticides.
This wine is a deep ruby red with violet-purple reflection. It has an intense aroma of black cherries with spicy, earthy notes. It is medium-bodied with layers of black cherry, wild berries, anise and pepper. It finishes with a clean minerality and a crisp acidity. It pairs well with grilled or roasted white and red meats, especially dishes flavored with mushrooms, rosemary, and garlic. (from the vintner)
ABOUT OUR DAILY QUALITY RATING SYSTEM
NOTE: Always check the "use or freeze by" date on your product label.
We've developed this Heat Index to give you an approximation of how spicy a particular dish tastes. Keep in mind that people tolerate chili heat in very different ways, so this scale may not reflect your individual experience with a dish.*
*Note for sensitive palates: Heat ratings are never guaranteed! Due to unpredictable environmental variations that range from rainfall to chance genetic changeability, chili spice often differs. Even two identical-looking jalapeños can pack two very different heat levels.
