2017 Pasetti Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
$27.00

Ruby red wine with aromas of blackberry, currant and blueberry, accompanied by hints of liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper. On the palate it is warm with soft and evolved tannins, a right balance, good structure and persistence.

The 2017 Montepulciano Pasetti is of incredible value for this crunchy, lovely red wine.

It represents the first line created by the Pasetti company, a classic among its Montepulciano d'Abruzzo in purity. Elegant and strongly representative red of its production area in Pescosansonesco (PE), in the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park.

The 5-generations long history of the Pasetti Winery starts in the Bourbon era and reaches the present day. The turning point for the winery came in the 60’, with the start of the vinification on its own: the result is extremely positive and the company manages to make a name for itself, registering a significant growth of customers and turnover.

In the 80’s, then, Mimmo Pasetti (who already began studying enology) gave the company the boost to dare bottling its Montepucliano: he did that to celebrate the birth of his firstborn Francesca, who was redhaired just like Mimmo’s grandmother Donna Rachele.

Thus was born the Testarossa (which literally meas “Red Head”), flagship of the Winery and the Pasetti Family, that since 5 generations carries on the viticoture work with the same passion and determination. Mimmo Pasetti, nowadays, manages the company and is a visionary entrepreneur: his project began at the dawn of the new millennium, when he started acquiring more and more fields in Pescosansonesco (Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park).

The terroir of Pescosansonesco, clay-calcareous and rich in skeleton, is perfect for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo cultivation; moreover, the important temperature range between day and night of this 550 m.a.s.l. place ensures that the win will have a sensory profile of high quality and elegance. Thus began the transformation process from the coastal part of Abruzzo to the mountain area, which will continue with the acquisistion of Capestrano, Castiglione a Casauria and Ofena: in such way, Pasetti Winery is the only company in Italy allowed to exhibit the National Park logo in the back of its bottles.

Today Mimmo manages the company along with his 3 sons, everyone with a defined and different role: Francesca Rachele is in charge of the administration, Massimo of the export and international visibility and Davide, who’s an oenologist, is in charge of the wine production.

Pairing Suggestions: It marries with rich and structured dishes from long cooking, red meats, game and very seasoned cheeses.

Maturation: The grapes, harvested towards the end of October, undergo a maceration of the skins for 10 - 15 days and the wine obtained after a first period of storage in Inox containers, is placed to mature in Oak Barrels of 60 Hl. of capacity for a period of 9 months. Subsequently bottled is left for 6 months to rest.
