Description

The Marramiero family have been growing grapes for centuries in Abruzzo.  They have some of the most well-situated old vines of Montepulciano and Trebbiano in the region. In many ways they are considered a ‘traditional’ producer for the Abruzzo, given their approach to old-school vineyard and winemaking techniques, and their wines follow suit, although with a touch of bright, rich, modern fruit.  The family has some interesting historical ties:  One of their wines is called “Inferi”, and features an artistic depiction of purgatory.  It pays tribute to their ancestor Dante Alighieri, and the first part of his epic poem The Divine Comedy, otherwise known as Dante’s Inferno.

Montepulciano can be found in many Italian wine regions, but it arguably reaches its apogee in Abruzzo.  In Abruzzo Montepulciano has a great range of styles, from light, juicy, bouncy reds all the way up to deep, brooding, wildly complex wines that require long aging.
The wine features a fairly deep red cherry colour.  The nose is classic Montepulciano with damson plum, black cherry, cinnamon, toasted walnut, and a touch of terracotta-like earthiness. The palate is not short on complexity, displaying spicy black fruit, dried herbs, toasted rye bread, and a touch of cocoa.  Structurally, the wine is quite muscular, with smooth tannins and energetic acidity.
