The Abruzzo are rather unknown as a winegrowing region, except for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, which originates from it. The winery Colle Corviano in Loreto Aprutino belongs to the growing region Pescara, where Montepulciano and Trebbiano grow traditionally in the rather warm climate characterized by the Adriatic Sea.
This wine is wonderfully full, soft with hints of vanilla, accompanied by ripe dark fruit, and a touch of chocolate. The finish is long and very soft.
