Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva 'Zanna' Illuminati 2017

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo "Zanna" by Illuminati owes its name to the vineyard of the same name in Controguerra village from which the grapes come. After a meticulous selection in the vineyard and an aging in oak barrels for 26 months, this red presents itself to the nose with a rich bouquet, structured on dried flowers, red fruits and ethereal echoes. On the palate is vigorous, supported by a soft tannin and a long palatal memory
