Intro to Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Caparrone –
The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Caparrone from Montepulciano Italy stood out in our recent tasting and is a real star with aromas of violets and ripe black fruit. The palate is warm and generous with attractive black cherry fruit, wild plum, firm tannins and good length.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Caparrone is a great combination of rich, spicy, robust flavours with fresh and approachable fruit nd is made from grapes grown in the nine hectare Colle Caparrone vineyard. The grapes are harvested at the start of October and then they’re fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 26-28ºC for 2-3 weeks, with up to a week’s maceration on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in oak for 6-8 months.
The producer –
Rocco Pasetti’s superbly sited twenty five hectare estate lies in the heart of the Collecorvino district in the hills northwest of Pescara, recognised as one of the best vineyard zones in Abruzzo. His range of impeccably made, fruit-rich wines combines warm and generous flavours with stylish, eye-catching presentation. The Caparrone wines are modern and easy to drink, yet wines of real substance. The Contesa range, produced in tiny quantities from selected parcels of the best grapes on the estate, are bold, impressive versions of Abruzzo’s local grapes, Montepulciano and the up-and-coming white variety Pecorino.
Rocco Pasetti is one of Abruzzo’s winemaking pioneers, and his wines are unquestionably amongst the best in the region. The Caparrone range takes it’s name from the district, in the hills west of Pescara, where Rocco developed his estate. In local Abruzzo dialect the word also means ‘stubborn’ or ‘hard-headed’. The label was designed by Rocco’s daughter Perla.
