Feudi d'Albe" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015

Vinicola Bove was established in 1930 and has since modernized the winery, which now boasts a high-tech bottling plant. The estate comprises 60 hectares of well situated vineyards and under the watchful eye of oenologist Dott. .Vittorio Festa, the vinification techniques ensure the production of the highest quality wines from low yields, with rigorous grape selection and refined ageing in oak barrels.

 

The native Montepulciano grape (not to be confused with the town of that name in Tuscany where Vino Nobile is made) is a vine of undeniable distinction. In parts of the Abruzzi, mainly in the north, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo becomes a red wine of irresistible character; full-bodied, even robust, with a capacity to age but it enjoys such supple smoothness that it can be eminently drinkable even when young.

 

The Bove style is to make well textured, mellow red wines showing good typicity. Their FEUDI D'ALBE is made in an easy drinking style which may be drunk on its own or to accompany food while the AVEGIANO is rich with chunky fruit and firm tannins. Their flagship INDIO shows dense flavours with hints of chocolate and spice enhanced by oak ageing.
