Torre Zambra Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Madia 2020
$ 34.00 incl. GST
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo “Madia” is a perfect example of a traditional Abruzzese wine. The deep, intense pitch black hue, with its typical purplish glints, is due to Montepulciano grapes, rigorously selected on the hills of Villamagna, Abruzzo, at an altitude of about 200 metres. The unique south-west aspecting of the vines and the limestone and clay soils, together with a lucky position between seas and mountains, guarantee the excellent structure and complexity of this enjoyable red wine. The grapes are picked in the first ten days of October, and consequently the maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature allows to extract the color from the skins. The wine then matures for a year in steel vats, and after the refinement continues for three months in the bottle.
Ruby red color, with purplish glints. The clean nose profile shows berry fruits scents and jam aromas, with hints of violet and bitter liquorices in the finale. The wine is supple and warm, well-balanced, firm and pleasantly lasting in the mouth. It is an ideal food wine, perfect to pair with a wide range of dishes, easily drinkable and enjoyable every day.
“Purple fruit, dark cherry, spice, dried herb and perfume. Medium-bodied, but deep and fleshy, with rich silty tannin, some new leather and savoury things, a distinct ‘mineral’ feel, and a finish of satisfying length. Plenty of chew and excellent flavour. A very good Montepulciano here. Hits the spot.” 92 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
