Nicodemi Notari Montepulcino D'Abruzzo
Notàri is the ancient name of our town, Notaresco, but also a name we chose to conjure up the character of our hills, gazing out to sea with the Gran Sasso massif standing guard. The first vintage was in 2003 and Montepulciano is a blend of three heirloom vineyards of different ages, aspecting and training systems.
The intense ruby red hues are tinged with violet. The nose is swathed in forest berries like blackberry and blueberry, then cloves, lavender and rosemary. The stylish palate is tangy, with mineral notes and closes with lengthy hints of blackcurrant and a balsamic nuance.
Excellent with any hot, spicy cuisine, or with Abruzzo’s classic dishes Lamb “Cacio e Ovo”.
