Description

Torre dei Beati Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Cocciapazza Organic DOC 2017

Torre dei Beati Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Cocciapazza has a deep and dense ruby red and violet shade when it is young. The typical red fruit of Montepulciano is particularly rich and mature. The bouquet is well-balanaced with wide spicy flavours ranging from black pepper and licorice to balsamic, chocolate and hint of tobacco. It is full and silky with mature tannins, the texture is round and velvety with a long and lasting finish.

It has the old, intriguing name of the area where the vineyard is planted (in the Abruzzo dialect “cocciappazza” means “crazy head”), as it is intended to be the best traditional expression of the Montepulciano in the land. The repeated harvests, in general three per vintage, are carried out in the plot with the best soil and climate conditions, able to give the fullest bodied and mature wines.
100% Montepulciano from a 49 years old vineyard that is 250m above sea level. The vines are grown in clay-limestone soil.
Fermentation took place in steel tanks and wines are aged for 20 months in French oak barrique.
