About This Wine

Looking for a satisfying wine to serve with a heaping plate of spaghetti?

Your search is over, as the 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from Conviviale is ideal for pouring alongside your favorite pasta dishes topped with tomato-based or rich meat sauces.

The Montepulciano grapes for this medium-bodied beauty were grown in the Chieti province of Abruzzo. Only selected parcels — ranging in age from 30 to 50 years, with low yields — were utilized. Low yields equate with concentrated flavors, and those flavors include red plum, red cherry and black bramble berry.

Aging in a combination of Slavonian oak casks and French oak barriques added enticing vanilla, cedar and cardamom impressions to the cuvee, making it extremely food friendly — especially with the well-seasoned sauces used to top pasta dishes. Whether you plan to serve a simple spaghetti dinner or a multi-layered homemade lasagna, the 2016 Conviviale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo will make the perfect pairing partner.
