Montepulciano is one of the wines of our Mediterranean collection. This variety originated in the Abruzzo region of central and Southern Italy. If you enjoy Australian Shiraz, then this a variety worth seeking.
We started the planting in 2000 and now have 6 varieties with their origins in Italy or Spain. They are varieties well-suited to the growing conditions of McLaren Vale and deliver the more rounded flavours of the Southern European climate. Great depth of colour comes first, then the aromas and flavours of red plums, boysenberries and oregano type spices, balanced with good acidity and firm tannins.
A true Italian style suiting foods like Beef Bolognese, a platter of cheese and spicy sausage and of course the ultimate, pizza.
