SC Pannell Montepulciano 2018
“Italian giggle juice! This is definitely happy wine and a variety I have great hope for in our warm climate. The wine is an immediate pleasure but given a moment can be contemplative and cerebral. In a way it’s the red version of Fiano with the same juxtaposition of lean and ripe.” – Steve Pannell
Originating in the warm, central, wine-growing areas of Italy and regarded as a beloved workhouse variety of great importance it suffers from a confounding name and is often confused with the Tuscan town of the same name. Vino Nobile di Montepluciano is in fact made from Sangiovese grapes whilst Montepulciano d‘Abruzzo is made from Montepulciano.
