From Orlandi Contucci Ponno (Montepulciano d'Abruzzo), we received this Orlandi Contucci Ponno Montepulciano d'Abruzzo la Regia Specula , a red wine based on montepulciano. Drinks&Co users evaluate this red wine with 4 out of 5 points.
“The wine originates from a selection of various preexisting Montepulciano grape clones in some of our vineyards. Our goal was to create a wine with traditional character, featuring the qualities of the genuine ancient rootstocks. By adhering to the new DOCG standard for the Colline Teramane denomination, with its severe regulations, including strict limits on production and significantly longer vinification and ageing times, we have obtained a product of excellent quality with far more smoothness and delicacy than the basic Montepulciano DOC.”
“La collina della Regia Specula era la sede dellosservatorio, lantica specola reale, (specula in latino: osservatorio) postazione dalla quale si scrutava il mare per individuare le navi di briganti e pirati che assalivano le coste sabbiose, indifendibili dagli attacchi nemici.”
