    "Vibrant aromas of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by delicate hints of spices (coriander, cumin, tarragon). Then very silky on the palate..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

    The brightness of this Tiberio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is perfect for your favorite meaty, rich dishes any night of the week. Try it with soft tacos of barbecued brisket, chipotle mayo and a vinegary slaw. We dare you not to love the combination. Vincisgrassi will bring out the herbs and earthy side of the wine. It's a lasagne made with wild mushrooms and prosciutto, and it's drop-dead delicious. Or, if you're craving a classic with a twist, make it a lamb bolognaise tossed with fresh fettucine. Buon apetito winelovers!

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Good bright red. Vibrant aromas of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by delicate hints of spices (coriander, cumin, tarragon). Then very silky on the palate, but displaying outstanding lift and intensity to the flavors of red cherry, pomegranate, flowers and tar. Very suave but juicy and fresh Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine with none of the heaviness that often drags down wines of this variety. The finish is suave and bracing and shows a delightful light touch. Drink 2018-2022." Sep 2018

    Winery:  "Brilliant ruby red with violet tinges. Intense aromas and flavors, refined and elegant, with hints of sour red cherry, blueberry, violet and flint. Smooth tannins, full-bodied and long, fresh finish. Food pairings: tomato and/or meat pasta dishes, poultry and wildfowl, red meats, venison and cheese."
