Selection Italian Montepulciano Style
Montepulciano is a vigorous red grape variety widely planted over much of east-central Italy, capable of creating deeply coloured, rich red wines with blackberry fruit flavours and spicy, peppery tannin levels. Montepulciano generally produces wines that are smooth and mellow yet robust and mouth filling, with dependably high alcohol content. Superb with veal and pasta--an Italian gem you won't want to miss.
Sweetness: DRY | Body: FULL | Oak Intensity: MEDIUM
Selection Premium Wine Kits contain 16 liters of 100% pure varietal juice and varietal grape concentrate, with perfectly balanced pH, acid and tannin levels. The large volume of pure grape juice in the blend provides more of the subtle characteristics than grape concentrate alone. Certain kits contain "F-packs" or finishing packs designed to enhance flavor and round out sweetness in those styles which require it. The F-packs are style specific and will be noted on the outside of the box if one is included. They are packaged in an aseptic, nitrogen purged bag placed in a very attractive outer box. Each kit makes six gallons.
