September 2022 Red Wine of the Month
Montepulciano pronounced ‘mon-ta-pull-channo’ is the second most planted red wine variety in Italy. Here in the United States, just a few acres of Montepulciano vines are in production, and it is still a rarity in California. This versatile variety produces a diversity of wine, from a light ‘pizza-friendly’ wine to a rich and full-bodied red wine. Our Montepulciano grapes were grown in Lodi, California, where the climate and soil allow the production of outstanding grapes. Enjoy our 2019 vintage of Montepulciano with tagliatelle pasta or pasta Bolognese, soy and mushroom burgers, or roasted garlic.
