Cellar for 5-7 years. No need to decant it, but best to open it half an hour before serving it.

Founded in 2006, Tenuta Ulisse is a symbol of the Abruzzo oenological Renaissance. The search for absolute quality is the goal of this winery, which the Ulisse family aims to achieve through the perfect balance between tradition and modernity. The winery, in fact, is very linked to the historical vines and traditions of Abruzzo but with a particular attention to modern winemaking technologies and their continuous evolution.

Tenuta Ulisse Nativae is the quintessential Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. It is produced entirely from Montepulciano grapes coming from the province of Chieti, in the heart of Abruzzo. Grapes are grown on calcareous clay soil, from a 20-year-old vineyard cultivated according to the rules of eco-sustainability, without any chemical treatment. They are then carefully selected and harvested by hand in early November. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in cement tanks without any filtration. The wine matures first in cement tanks and then in bottles before entering the market.

It has an intense red color with garnet reflections. On the nose, it is deep and elegant with hints of wild herbs and spices, enriched with notes of ripe plum. On the palate, it is strong and intense, pleasantly acidic, and with a good balance of tannins. It's the ideal partner for grilled red meat, game and Pecorino cheese.
