Grapes are harvested from hillside vineyards in the province of Chieti, in central Italy’s coastal Abruzzo region.
Wine maker notes
Grapes are gently pressed, and then undergo a cryo-maceration process at 41°F, where the skins remain in contact with the must to extract all aromatic characteristics from the grapes. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks (maximum 68°F).

Food pairing
Perfect accompaniment to seafood, white meats and cheeses. Also excellent well-chilled as an aperitif.

Born in the Abruzzo, Niro represents the ancient winemaking traditions of a region where vines date back to the Roman Empire. Nestled between the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennines Mountains to the west, the areas of Vasto and Crecchio offer the perfect climate for highlighting all the exceptional characteristics of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape. As one of Italy’s premier sources of well-made, affordable wines, the Abruzzo region is on a winning streak. Despite their seemingly isolated location, Abruzzo winemakers are second to none when it comes to producing deftly crafted wines that are the definition of quality on a significant scale. In the making of Niro, only the best fruit in small lots is selected and vinified following traditional techniques sometimes overlooked by modern technology. Niro undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract all the richness of the Montepulciano grape. The resulting wine is intense and deep in color, lending the wine its name - NIRO - which in many Italian dialects means BLACK.
