The grapes for Frentana Rubesto Montepulciano Riserva are harvested exclusively from select, steeply angled vineyards with excellent drainage and pebble soils. Harvest takes place in late October, and clusters are then destemmed. Using indigenous yeasts, the must is fermented with the skins for 10-15 days, then aged in a combination of barrique and large oak barrels for 12 months, before bottle-aging for another 4-6 months. A generous Montepulciano enhanced by its time under oak, this red displays focused black and red berry notes, bolstered by rounded tannins that weave through hints of anise and chanterelle.

Enjoy Frentana Rubesto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva over the next 8-10 years with a grilled steak, osso buco, lasagna, and aged cheeses.

ince 1958, Cantina Frentana has formed a reputation for purity and quality in Abruzzo's Majella Hills. With vineyards scattered throughout the Chieti region, Frentana continues to produce wines that take advantage of the region’s chalky soils and maritime influence.

A whack of bacon fat and coffee aromas covers the nose. More oak tones arise on the medium-bodied palate, covering up the fruit beneath. There's still balance to be enjoyed thanks to grippy tannins and lifted acidity.
