Magnetic, forceful Italian red that's quite possibly over-loaded with oomph and power! There's some toasty new oak to add to the uber-rich fruit - think blueberry pie, black cherry jam, liquorice, clove and vanilla extract. Huge density, weight and length - mighty stuff.
 
Decant for two hours and try with harissa-crusted rack of lamb.
 
Made from 100% Montepulciano fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak barrels
 
Organically-farmed Collefrisio, the project of third-generation winemakers Amedeo De Luca and Antonio Patricelli, is located in the hills of Frisa, Chieti province. The charming azienda vinicola (wine farm) features a huge loft nestled among the vineyards that contains a magnificent wine tasting and dining room for the many epicurean events that Collefrisio runs over the year, while its quiet, peaceful cellars lie underneath the vines.
 
Abruzzo is Italy's fifth-leading wine region, after Sicily, Puglia, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna. A beautiful, hilly place, with an extensive Adriatic coastline, its lush landscape is patched liberally with parks and forests. Abruzzo's winelands are ideally situated between the sea and the Apennines mountains (including 2,895m-high Gran Sasso). Montepulciano and Trebbiano are the most important grapes.
