IL GIGANTE CHE DORME

 

The inhabitants of the region of Abruzzo have given the nickname 'Il Gigante che Dorme' or, 'The Sleeping Giant', to the Gran Sasso mountain. The mountain forms part of an imposing chain which, when viewed from the plains, looks just ike a sleeping giant.

This wine comes from the hilly region between Giulianova and Mosciano Sant'Angelo where a low yeild of grapes occurs naturally: the land lends itself to vines that are naturally balanced with clusters of concentrated grapes of extraordinary quality. The result is a wine with all the strength and character that one might expect from the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo varietal. A limpid, deep red wine with blue reflections. The bouquet is very intense, complex, full and refined. Fruity, floral, full and spiced (ripe berries, eucalyptus, peonies, blackberries,English roses, cocoa, vanilla, leather, humus) on the mouth. It pairs perfectly with roast or marinated wild boar, roast lamb, red meat (especially game), strong cheeses, and dark chocolate. An excellent sipping wine to be enjoyed slowly in front of the fire.

Serving temperature: 18-20 C / 64-68 F

We recommend decanting this wine and letting it rest until it gradually reaches a serving temperature of 17-20 C / 63-68 F.
