Montepulciano was first planted at Coriole back in 2001. We love the variety for its rich intensity and lovely array of savoury characters to balance the dark cherry fruit. The 2018 Montepulciano is medium to full bodied, lightly floral, with excellent depth of flavour, black olive and tealeaf on the nose, following through to the palate along with rich dark fruits and a cherry chocolate character.
"A gently smoky edge to the nose with fresh, ripe red berries and plums, as well as a very attractive, spiced earthy edge. The palate has a sleek, succulent and quite silky palate with a neat, juicy finish."
