This is our first 100% Montepulciano and the journey has been worth it! Montepulciano is a central Italian red wine variety, well suited to the warm maritime climate of McLaren Vale, late ripening with deep colour and robust tannins. 


Blackberries, amaro herbs, cola flavours. Savoury, bramble mouthfeel, which is medium bodied, but powerful to the point, kind of rugged, grapey, off-the-vine natural feel. Certified carbon neutral, vegan-friendly wine.

 

Reviews of 2022 Montepulciano:
92 points, Stuart Knox, The Real Review, February 2024:
"Deep purple colour with a rich nose of blackberry, iodine and rosemary. Full and weighty, ripe black fruits are the core with ample ferrous and bloody minerality to bring balance to the palate. Tannins are grainy, suiting the intensity of fruit and adding to the sense of deep savouriness. Carries long and finishes dry. I’d definitely recommend serving alongside a solid roast of beef."
88 points, Lisa Cardelli, Winepilot, October 2023:
"Prunes, kirsch, bramble, stewed black plums and black cherry. Seems like that the crostata alla frutta nera (black fruit tart) that my grandmother used to make it’s finally back. Add some blue violets on the table, and I’m ready for my merenda (tea break). As inky as you can possibly imagine, the young and exuberant tannins are embracing the palate like my grandmother, strong of her many years as farmer, went on when I was a quarter of her height. It’s an honest wine, unpretentious like a good Italian farmer would be."

90 points, The Vintage Journal Summer Wine Guide 2023 :
"Deep ruby in colour and fruit forward with lashings of liquorice allsorts, black cherry laced with allspice. Mid weight and chewy with firm tannins and a muscular texture, dark berry/ chocolaty fruits gently lingering to finish."
