A La Quercia is a type of beautiful oak tree that grows nobly on this small intimate estate in Abruzzo. Winemaker Antonio Lamona believes in making inspired wines that respect the earth..or, as he likes to say, "I want to make wines that are pleasing to the body and the spirit."
This Montepulciano is a great example of what can happen when you match low yield expertise with a prolific varietal, and constantly cut, cut, cut back the vines.
With ripe, dark plum and a hint of smoke, this stunning affordable from Abruzzo is a true crowd pleaser. Farmed organically and picked by hand, it takes zero shortcuts. “A round, medium-bodied red, with delicate dried thyme and spiced orange peel accents to the creamed black cherry and mocha notes. Lightly juicy and smoke-tinged on the finish.”
