Tasting notes
This wine is ruby colored, with an aroma of ripe cherries. It has a pleasant, soft, taste and a clean finish with nuances of almonds. It is generous and elegant for a wine of its price.

Wine maker notes
“Collegiata” takes its name from the beautiful Collegiata church in the nearby town of Sant’Angelo. This wine is made of the best Montepulciano grapes from the general harvest in mid-October. The wine undergoes a soft pressing followed by a cool, long fermentation. Then the wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks for three months. After filtration, there is additional aging in the bottle for a month or more. The wine is then systematically checked and tasted to ascertain the optimum sales release date. The resulting wine achieves a level of complexity and harmony unparalleled in wines of Collegiata’s price.

Food pairing
This wine goes well with rich pasta dishes, especially meat and spicy sauces. It also pairs well with sharp cheeses, such as pecorino. Enjoy this wine with hamburgers and poultry, including turkey.
