2013 Torre Zambra Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colle Maggio
Tiziana Settimo, winemaker extraordinaire in Barolo, sent us a package last year. In it were samples made by “friends” of hers in Abruzzo from the Torre Zambra winery. Long story made short, we are now their importer. What do we love? The wines are honest and authentic. Like this Montepulciano: It’s rugged and brawny, with no hard edges. Pasta dishes would be great with this, such as rabbit papardelle.
