Made from 100% Montepulciano grapes and then the wine was aged for 11 months in oak barrels. A pleasant, smooth, medium- to full-bodied Italian red wine for a great price. Dark fruit aromas and toasty oak. Finishes with black cherries, anise and toasty oak. Pair with grilled meats.

Montepulciano D'abruzzo food pairings: meat lasagna, veal liver with sautéed onions, sausage casserole.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Totally Inviting! Sweet cherry, baking spice, and licorice dominate the nose. This easy going Italian red shows moderate tannins, medium acidity, and overall, a moderate bodied red that is quite a versatile pair. Enjoy with pizza! Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
This is a very pleasant Montepulciano, oaked 11 months in barrels. Very smooth and pleasant. This wine is named Jorio in tribute to twentieth-century Abruzzese poet Gabriele D'Annunzio in tribute to his famous work "La figlia di Jorio". - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
