Torre dei Beati Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Mazzamurello Organic DOC 2018
Torre dei Beati Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Mazzamurello has a distinctive body with excellent persistence and balance. The “sur lies”technique gives the wine natural stability, and enhanced fruity flavours with elegant nuances of flowers and spices, introducing a fresh and deep palate. This bouquet provides a long finish and intriguing drinkability.
This bottle of red is obtained through the particular “sur lies” process applied to the best wine of the vintage. During aging in the barrique, this technique is applied to give rise to these peculiar flavours that are different compared to the traditional Montepulciano. This has reminded the winemakers the name “Mazzamurello”, a playful pixie of the Abruzzo tradition that is imagined to live hidden among the barriques to play with the wines in it.
"Sur lie, also means "on the lees". This means the wine ages in contact with its fine lees for a considerable time, this helps it to develop pronounced round, full, creamy flavours.
100% Montepulciano from a 49 years old vineyard on an altitude of 250m above sea level. The vines are grown in clay-limestone soil. The wines are fermented in stell tanks and aged for 20 months in French barriques.
