Indio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinicola Bove was established in 1930 and have recently modernized the winery, which now boasts a high-tech bottling plant. The estate comprises 60 hectares of well situated vineyards and under the watchful eye of oenologist Dott. Vittorio Festa, the vinification techniques ensure the production of the highest quality wines from low yields, with rigorous grape selection and refined ageing in oak barrels. Their flagship wine INDIO shows dense flavours with hints of chocolate and spice enhanced by oak ageing. Vintage: 2006 Grapes: From a careful selection of Montepulciano dAbruzzo grapes (90%) and Cabernet (10%). Soil: Marl & Clay Vinification: Extended skin maceration. Fermentation in temperature controlled tanks. Ageing: After blending the wine spends 10 months in Allier barriques (1/3 new oak and 1/3 first year oak) and balance in stainless steel. The cuvees are then blended and aged for a further 6 - 9 months in bottle prior to release. The wine is bottled unfiltered. Colour: Intense ruby red. Serve: Decant and serve at room temperature with full flavoured main courses, roasts, game and mature cheese. Taste: On the nose wild berries mingle with vanilla, while on the palate the wine is full-bodied, smooth and elegant with a lingering finish.
