Jasci DOC Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (half bottle)
Lovingly sourced by the Jasci family from a number of well-sited plots of vines in the province of Chieti in Abruzzo, this dark, juicy Montepulciano exhibits all the classic hallmarks of this much loved wine style. Ripe, dark autumnal hedgerow fruits mingle with notes of spice and a touch of liquorice. Fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks and cement vats in order to safeguard as much of the pure fruit expression as possible.The tannins are well sculpted, lending an attractive dry edge to the finale, ensuring that the wine is appreciated at its best when served at table with traditional Italian cuisine. The Jasci family themselves suggest drinking it with a plate of potato gnocchi or pasta with beans.
Located in Abruzzo, Jasci is a family affair whose vineyards are planted on the hillside slopes that sweep down to the Adriatic sea. The vineyards have been organic since 1980.
