Nicodemi Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015
Starting in 2003 in the Teramo subdistrict of the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, a new appellation and Abruzzo's first DOCG was granted: Colline Teramane. At medium altitude and closer to the seaside, a more favorable climate has proven to guarantee distinctly superior tannin maturity. The Nicodemi winery is in the center of this new appellation and with the close collaboration of enologist, Paolo Caciorgna, has established itself as a leader and promoter of highest quality Montepulciano and Trebbiano. Founded by Bruno Nicodemi, the property has now passed into the hands of the second generation and has been revamped by his children, Elena and Alessandro. The typical "tendone" vineyard management prevalent in the area has been abandoned at Nicodemi in favor of the lower yielding "cordone" method of vine training. The full potential of this area, not yet fully explored, will surely find the forefront of revelation in the hands of this ambitious brother and sister team!
