WINE CLUB May 2024 | 2022 Montepulciano | American

Lovely and light, our Montepulciano is just the ticket to welcome backyard barbeque season!

Montepulciano is an Italian varietal that we sourced from Amador County, CA, hence the “American” designation. Our rendition is a lighter bodied red with a super smooth finish. This is not a wine that needs to be aged; its ready to drink right now!

Delicate floral aromas invite you into this wine. The palate is pleasant and full of ripe plum flavors that glide across your tongue. There are no tannins on the finish of this wine, allowing it to melt away once swallowed. Enjoy Montepulciano with any food pairing, including pizza, pasta, or you’re favorite barbeque fare.

Serving Tip: In warmer weather, this wine does well with a slight chill to highlight its freshness.
