Drink it now or cellar for up to 15 years. It is recommended to decant it an hour before serving.

Established in 1990, after years of experimentation on the Santa Teresa di Spoltore vineyard, La Valentina winery has decided to focus on the enhancement of traditional regional vines: Montepulciano and Trebbiano. With the renovation of the old cellar, completed in 2008, the company can take advantage of spaces managed optimally, separating the various stages of vinification and aging with those of refinement and storage of wines. The vineyards spread through the hills around the Pescara valley and its tributaries, on medium-textured clay soils at different altitudes: about 150 meters near Spoltore near the sea and 400 meters in Scafa under the Maiella.

The Montepulciano d'Abruzzo grapes come from vineyards of Spoltore, San Valentino and Scafa. Here the vines have an age of 10-42 years and are planted on Medium-textured clayey soil at an Altitude 150-400 meters above sea level, South / South-West exposure.

The wine has a red color with garnet reflections. Among the aromas of sour cherry syrup, licorice, plum jam, and tea leaves, there are notes of cinchona and peat. On the palate, it shows great vitality, with lively but velvety tannins. Despite its powerful character, it is smooth and round, vigorous and snappy. The taste is harmonious and well-calibrated by alcoholic heat, with long and tasty persistence. Have it with pasta Bolognese or red meat stews.
