While tasting such an identity making Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, we can confirm with certainty the great potential of this connotation, horizontally regarding its use in international dishes of the modern cuisine and also in the traditional ones, but in the case of Riserva “Caroso” of this dynamic and important Abruzzo reality, also regarding a great end-meal to live with the truest friends.
This wine’s authenticity, indeed, presents itself already at the sense of smell with an impressive dimension in the fine spicing and barriers, with that pleasant note of licorice and sweet tobacco which accompanies the sip. The softness of the tannins is at the base of this Riserva truly well centered in the taste-smell equilibriums, making it possible for its sapid and pleasantly elegant – also together with the acid – to be places undoubtedly among the true bishops of the Abruzzo enology.
The final mineral notes give that typical pleasantness of the great whole harmony wines. We tasted it with green pepper filet and for a moment we felt in the wine glass all the energy and the love for the territory which this extraordinary Italian cooperative holds.
