Wine Name: All Wrapped Up
Alcohol Content: 14.50%
Blend: Graciano-Montepulciano blend with Alicante Bouschet, Mourvedre and Counoise
Description: Deeply colored; perfumed, with aromas of mulberry, violets and chocolate. Mildly tannic with flavors of delicious ripe plum and black pepper are complemented by vanilla and plump raising in the finish.
Winemaker’s Notes: Our award winning Montepulciano brings optimal acidity and a wealth of rich spice. The choice to blend with one of our newer stars Graciano was obvious for its intense aromas and unmistakable presence in blends. As with all of our Sultry Cellars wines, your reward comes from the patience of the winemaker and his willingness to age the wine. A gentle oak protocol supports the wine, it doesn’t mask it.
Pairings: grilled lamb chops, lasagna with truffles or earthy cheeses such as Pecorino d’Abruzzo or Talamello.
