Barone Cornacchia Casanova Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2021


One of our biggest selling premium Monte's

A fresh and richly fruited Montepulciano from a quality traditional producer, who now uses organic methods. Cornacchia's vineyard soils are stony and calcerous, which makes them well-drained in addition to the aromatic brightness added by the presence of lime. With an altitude of 240 metres, these closely managed and certified organic sites offer perfect conditions for a beautifully balanced and food-orientated Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

Deep ruby red with violet-purple reflections. Huge, fruity bouquet; black cherry and herb scented. Lush currant fruit with velvety soft tannins and perfect fruit acid balance. A wine of great harmony and intensity. The finish is long and spicy.

"Dried flowers, cherries, sage and tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied, with savoury and mineral layers framed by firm tannins. Excellent balance and freshness. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 91/100 James Suckling (2021 Vintage)
