"Testarossa" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva DOC - Soc. Agr. Pasetti Vini

The beauty (and the good) of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. A grape that is generous by nature and that, when correctly utilised, can give life to simply unforgettable wines. Wines that require the right combination to be appreciated at their best, but that can also accompany diners in long chats around the table until late at night. Pasetti's Testarossa is a fine example. It is the result of a long process that first involves a period of six months in cement vats and then several months of refinement in first and third passage French oak barriques. But that's not enough. Before finally being put on the market, Testarossa must rest for at least another two years in the bottle. A long journey that, however, pays off in spades when the time finally comes to taste it. In the glass it has a beautiful deep and intense ruby red colour. The nose is pure red fruit. Strawberry, cherry, blackberry and raspberry. It goes all the way to plum and the noble spice of tobacco and dark chocolate. In the mouth it does not disappoint. It is a warm and robust wine, with elegant tannins that integrate perfectly into the whole. Great structure and long finish.

Winemakers have the task of not ruining the good things that nature gives them. A sacrosanct principle that is even more valid if the winery is located in a place of magical beauty and great vocation. This is undoubtedly the case of Cantina Pasetti, a winery in Abruzzo that can count on 60 hectares of vineyards, between Gran Sasso and Monti dell'Laga, in the heart of the National Park. This area, in fact, is characterized by strong temperature ranges, constant wind and particularly heterogeneous soils, which guarantee grapes of the highest quality. The many native vines of the region are mainly cultivated, starting with Montepulciano, the true protagonist of quality viticulture in recent years, but also Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Pecorino and Passerina. Pasetti is a quality company that must be followed. It can be very satisfying.
