Montepulciano




Arbosto Rosso Arbosto Rosso $11.00

We love affordable easy drinkers! Medium to full bodied with very soft tannins despite the high tannin Aglianico. Bright acidity and rustic notes with tart red cherries and green olives flavors. Add a little earthy herb and a light amount of spice then a long finish with hints of chocolate, baking spices, and some peppery, toasted oak.



Nicodemi Nicodemi $13.00

The Montepulciano grape is used this beautifully vibrant Cerasuolo rose. The deeply pigmented skins are only in contact with the juice for about 12 hours, yet it creates a robust color. Cherry, strawberry, floral and earthy undertones. Pairs well with seafood, pizza and having your toes in the sand!



Nicodemi Colline Teramane Nicodemi Colline Teramane $16.00

Montepulciano D'Abruzzo has one DOCG, Colline Teramane. The expression of these wines are more complex and intense than that of its DOC counterparts. These have the ability to age in the bottle due to more tannin and acid. Red and black fruits, tobacco, earthy clay create a well rounded glass of wine. If you have had Montepulciano, give this a go!



Fattoria Buccicatino Montepulciano Fattoria Buccicatino Montepulciano $18.00

Many think of Montepulciano as a poor and dusty peasant wine but they havenít had this one! High quality fruit on French oak, one of our favorites and all time best sellers. From Abruzzo in Eastern Italy.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 15 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 8 bottles)

  • Fiore Nebbiolo

    #4 Fiore Nebbiolo

    A beautifully balanced Nebbiolo. Aromas of dried violets, earth and hints of anise. The palate yields more savory earthiness, dark cherry, pomegranate, subtle notes from oak. Enough tannin to wait a few years, but enough acid to approach now. We envision a glass of this next to a piece of roast lamb. (behind by 1 bottles)
