2022 Passetti "Fonte Romana" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Nice Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC dry red wine. “Easy” to drink and match with food.

It’s a ruby red wine which smells of ripe red fruits,dried flowers and spices like pepper,cinnamon and nutmeg. In the mouth it’s soft with delicate tannins,good structure and persistence.

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Fonteromana is obtained from the same grape variety with a yield of 130 quintals per hectare. Grapes are picked up in the middle of October with a successive skin contact for about 10-15 days. After that,the wine is put in steel tanks and then in 60hl oak barrels for 4 months.

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.

It needs to rest at least 10 days after its arrive. It should be served at a temperature of 18 °C.
