With over 200 years of history Podere Castorani spreads across 75 acres of lush countryside in the province of Pescara, Italy, between Majella National Park and the Adriatic Sea. The estate’s principal grape varieties are Montepulciano d’Abruzzo in red and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo in white. The partners regularly test new grape varieties in a perpetual search for the fullest expression of the terroir. At Podere Castorani, their pursuit of excellence can only be satisfied through respect for traditional expertise.
Hand harvested in October the grapes are fermented with manual pump-overs to improve the extraction of the color and the varietal aromas. Maceration takes place for 14 days in concrete tanks after which the wine is aged for 24 months.
Podere Castorani Cadetto Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is ruby red with violet notes, along with a nose of intense red fruit notes, with light hints of spices and chocolate. On the palate, it is full bodied with mature tannins and notes of spices and chocolate.
Perfect with chicken, light beef dishes, veal, and classic Italian pasta with tomato or meat sauce.
