Massimo Romeo loves his land the wines he produces from it. Surprisingly few wineries have adopted organic farming methods in Montepulciano, but for Massimo, there was no question about it. He knows Montepulciano’s wines better than most in the area, he used to be the president of the Consorzio. He makes some of the area’s best wines from his small estate that sits on a small hill. His wines are divine and his production is quite low.
This wine gives aromas of rose, berries and baking spice, mingled with earthy dust, used leather and underbrush. The palate is very juicy and gives a dense layer of red cherry, clove and an earthy hint of game pairing with rather grippy tannin.
Pair it With:
This robust wine and its grippy tannins calls for richer and more savory foods; match it with something with substance (fat). Some of our favorites would be roasted pork shoulder, barbecued beef brisket, braised goat, aged cheddars and parmesans.
