Ciu Ciu Montepulciano Oppidum
Marche Rosso IGT
Oppîdum is made entirely from old Montepulciano vines grown in a certified organic vineyard at an altitude of 300m, on mixed soils with a high proportion of clay on limestone.
The vines are spur trained and the grapes picked by hand at the end of October.
Fermentation is on the skins and lasts 20 days, 30% of the wine is then aged in two and three year old barrique and the remainder in 10hl barrels for 12 months. The wine is aged in bottle for at least 6 months before its release.
It is not released every vintage and is worth seeking out.
Old school, classic montepulciano. Brooding, muscular fruit with truffle and dark chocolate flavours, tannins are ripe and firm, floral and mineral elements lift the wine, a worthwhile addition to any cellar. Best 2015-2020 15%
