2016 Culaccino Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

Ripe, juicy, sun-ripened berry fruit flavors are showcased on the palate of this approachable and crowd-pleasing red, making it the perfect foil for pizza or a bowl of pasta drenched in tomato sauce. This organically grown Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a stellar example of why the grape is the second most-cultivated variety in Italy.
