'Riparosso' is the winery's entry-level wine, a great introduction to Montepulciano and a blockbuster. A joyous, fruit-driven red with juicy dark cherries, flowers and spices that seem to jump from the glass. The palate is deep, full, round, and well-balanced with a lingering hint of licorice on the finish. Pairs well with roasted red meats, braised meats, game, poultry, medium-aged cheeses, and it is ideal with lamb. A perfect everyday red wine and always a crowd favorite!

This accessible Montepulciano displays a mix of ripe cherry and wild berry tones, studded with peppery spice, tobacco and menthol. There's plenty of tangy acidity to keep it refreshing and a sturdy structure of medium-grained tannins for support. The finish extends on cherry skin and warm spice tones.

A balanced, medium-bodied red, with light tannins defining the expressive flavors of ripe plum, thyme, smoke and black olive paste. Drink now through 2021. 50,000 cases made, 3,500 cases imported.
