Panarda Montepulciano DOC
Production and wine making
This wine is the result of a project that starts from the vineyard; it is in fact created from grapes of selected vineyards within the “Quality Vineyards” that Cantina Frentana started several years ago. The wine is made with prolonged maceration and with peak temperatures of around 30 degrees, in order to allow a complete extraction of color, tannins and aromatic precursors. After the wine is subjected to aging in fine oak barrels, for a period of 18 months, during which the wine evolves towards maturity.
Features of the wine
Ruby red color with violet reflections; the nose has considerable complexity of aromas, including spicy and balsamic notes accompanying hints of ripe red fruit, blackberry jam, black cherries under alcohol and violet. These features make it an ideal companion for substantial dishes such as red meat, lamb, game, cheese; it is a sipping and after dinner wine, with dark chocolate flakes. It is recommended to decant the wine before tasting, to facilitate oxygenation, and served at a temperature of 16-18° C.
