Indio, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2011

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 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is made in an easy drinking style which may be drunk on its own or to accompany food and their Trebbiano d’Abruzzo is a soft and fruity dry white wine pleasant to enjoy on a hot summer’s day. Their AVEGIANO Montepulciano is rich with chunky fruit and firm tannins and their CERASUOLO rose is well structured with fine strawberry fruit.aromas Their flagship INDIO shows dense flavours with hints of chocolate and spice enhanced by oak ageing and continues to win awards worldwide.

Grapes: From a careful selection of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes (90%) and Cabernet (10%).

Soil: Marl & Clay

Vinification: Extended skin maceration. Fermentation in temperature controlled tanks.

Ageing: After blending the wine spends 10 months in Allier barriques (1/3 new oak and 1/3 first year oak) and the balance in stainless steel. The cuvees are then blended and aged for a further 6 - 9 months in bottle prior to release. The wine is bottled unfiltered.

Colour: Intense ruby red.

Serve: Decant and serve at room temperature with full flavoured main courses, roasts, game and mature cheese.

Taste: On the nose wild berries mingle with vanilla, while on the palate the wine is full-bodied, smooth and elegant with a lingering finish.

As good as I remembered, as, since, there is no more, it is comforting that the 2009 is equally enjoyable!
