About the Producer

The fame of Folonari is due to its exceptional skill in selecting vineyards and grapes for producing wines of consistent quality and guaranteed authenticity. Its Pinot Grigio, Soave, Chardonnay and Merlot are distributed throughout the world.

Grapes

100% Montepulciano D’Abruzzo

Vineyard

This wine is obtained from selected vineyards on the hills of various municipalities in several provinces (Chieti, L’Aquila, Pescara and Teramo) in central Italy. The average yield is approximately 12 tons of grapes per hectare.

Vinification

Well ripened grapes are vinified by the traditional red wine method, with maceration on the skins; fermentation takes place slowly, at a relatively low temperature to protect the varietal aromas.

Ageing

After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is allowed to rest and age before being released for consumption.

Tasting Notes

It presents a purplish ruby red appearance and intense aromas redolent of plum jam and morello cherry. The round, dry palate shows a lingering, pleasant finish of dried fruit and roasted hazelnuts.
