Montepulciano (“mon-ta-pull-channo”) is a delicious medium-bodied red wine made with 100% Montepulciano grapes.  Known for its red plum, sour cherry and boysenberry aromas, Montepulciano is one of the most popular varietals in Italy. The grapes are whole berry processed and they are then barrel aged for 2 years in 100% French Oak, 10% of which is from new French Oak barrels.

Enjoy one of Tuscany Italy’s most popular wines. This is a lush, medium to full-bodied wine,
rich with bright blackberry and floral aromas. 
The intense flavors of cherry, spice, and cocoa come together in a
balanced wine that is a perfect complement to meats, pasta and pizza!  It is a great everyday wine!

proprietor and winemaker Rob Lawson strives to integrate Napa Valley’s climate
and growing techniques and conditions with true Italian varietals. The Pelissa
family planted this old Abruzzo clone in 2001 specifically for PAVI. A half
acre of fun. A great wine to showcase Napa's diversity in wine growing.
