A proper Montepulciano d'Abruzzo - rich, roast coffee and aniseed notes on a warm powerful finish, make this Montepulciano a 'must try.' Quite firm, with mixed dark and red berry and also savoury flavours from ageing in Slavonian oak for 6 months. Illuminati has a great reputation in this area, and this wine has been awarded 2 glasses by Italy's most prestigious Gambero Rosso.
The winery recommends lamb or goat dishes to go with this wine - take your pick! (You can also have it with bolognaise or ragu dishes).
