Montepulciano has proven to be a resilient grape, offering high yields in even extreme conditions. It is also very fruit forward and drinks great young, making it no mystery why it is one of the most planted grape varieties in Italy. This Monteplciano from Kimbolton Vineyards in Langhorne Creek, Fluerieu Peninsula, undergoes 20%whole bunch fermentation and stainless steel fermentation and maturation.
Juicy bright flamboyant Montepulciano with a quickening beetroot tang. This has a really more-ish acidity with a bitter cherry attack crying out for fatty carpaccio.
