Cumaro Conero Riserva 2010
A dense ruby red colour, very fruity with hints of ripe plum, currant and cherry on the basis of spicy black pepper, vanilla and tobacco. The palate is soft, with smooth tannins and a chocolate finish.
Vineyard:The vineyard from which Cùmaro originates is situated on the edge of the municipality of Osimo, facing south?east, at a height of about 150 meters above sea level. The terrain, which started out as marine formations from the Pleiocene?Pleistocene era, consists of deep and particularly calcareous soils. The yield is kept within strict limits by very close pruning and targeted thinning, and can vary from five to six tons per hectare according to the season.
Harvest: The grapes are picked by hand, and collected and transported in boxes. Montepulciano is a fairly late variety. Harvesting does not normally begin before the second ten days in October, when the grapes have reached peak condition with an advanced degree of phenolic ripening.
Pairings: A fine companion for rare?cooked red meat, game?birds and mature cheese.
Ideal serving temperature 18?20 °C
