The Montepulciano d ́Abruzzo Harimann is obtained by crushing Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes produced in old vineyards that yield about 80 quintals per hectare. Grapes are hand-harvested during the first week of November. Grapes are crushed and soaked for a period of about 25/30 days in stainless steel vats and after a short storage, the wine ages for about 24 months in oak barriques.
In the glass the wine is deep ruby red color.
The nose is elegant and complex with notes of ripe
red fruits, cherries, plums, berries and black cherries, accompanied by hints
of violet and dried red flowers. The palate is warm, soft and deep with flavors
of red berries, chocolate, plums, leather, tobacco and coffee balanced by evolved
tannins and good acidity.
Harimann represents the evolution of
Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and can be aged for up to 20 years.
It will pair well with Grilled Red Meats, Wild
Game, or by itself, even with chocolate or a good Cigar.
