Jasci & Marchesani is a family-owned winery and certified organic since 1978. Winners of the Italian Winery of the Year in 2014, they specialize in wines that demonstrate outstanding value and quality for the price. Montepulciano is known for its brilliant red wines with herbaceous notes and strong tannins. On the nose, fruit-forward with aromas of vanilla, balsamic, and black olive. Full bodied and muscular on the palate, with flavours of red and dark berries, dark chocolate, and a medium-plus finish. Best paired with fatty meat dishes, spaghetti bolognaise, and beef renang. Harvested from select estates and aged in oak for 6 months.
Crushed walnuts, berry fruit and ripe plums on the nose. Youthful, simple and medium-bodied, with rustic tannins. From organically grown grapes.
