CANTINA TOLLO, MADREGALE, Colline Teatine
Organic principles & Certified organic
From the award-winning Cantina Tollo, one of the biggest and best co-operative wineries in the Abruzzo region, covering 3,200 ha owned by 800 farmers.
Madregale Rosso is a light-bodied blend of Montepulciano, Sangiovese. Although easy-drinking, simple and fresh, this is serious quality for an entry-level wine. Hand harvested from vineyards which stretch from the coastal hills right up into the Majella Massif, the vines benefit from good expositions and large diurnal temperature differences, which are ideal for building aromatic flavour profiles. It has aromas of red cherries and tea rose and finishes a pleasant herbal edge. At only 5g/l of residual sugar, there is no tricking-up to please international palates. Honest and refreshingly drinkable.
