Drink now through to 2029. No need to decant before serving.

The historic San Lorenzo winery was founded in 1890 and over the past three generations of the Crognaletti family it has flourished and grown to become the largest family-run winery in Teramo province in the central Italian region of Abruzzo. The family’s 150 hectares are situated just 20km from the striking 3000 metre tall Grand Sasso mountain and 20km from the sea. This setting on gently rolling hills ensures that the grapes achieve optimal ripeness while retaining freshness and aromatics.

The Antares is a prime example of the potential of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape variety. Current owner and winemaker Natalino Crognaletti insists on farming the land organically and biodynamically to get the very best from his vineyards. Following the harvest the grapes destined for this wine are fermented and macerated for up to 20 days. The young wine is then transferred to large French oak barrels for 12 months of maturation.

On the nose this charming wine opens with hints of mulberry, dark plum, and sweet spice, while the first sip reveals bold berry notes, a full body, smooth tannins, and a long finish. The subtle oaky touches and ripe fruit flavours make this a good match for aged cheeses, barbecued meats, and seasonal game.
