Ruby colour with purple hue, firm, persistent nose,intensely fruity; bilberry, mulberry and plum notes followed by spicy and rich balsamic tones of vanilla and coffee. Full and fruity structure. It is a gentle and spontaneous wine, with sweet and velvety tannins, great aromatic, perfect from nose to mouth.

Producer
As a long time lover of food and wine (and life!), it just makes sense that I ended up in the wine business. It started with Mom and Dad and growing up Italian American. Nobody makes better meatballs than Mom, the bread is always important, we love a good bakery or Italian market, and finding the best pizza is a family pastime. I’ve been a radio personality in the South Florida area for nearly 30 years (www.paulandyoungron.com) and over those years, I’ve befriended numerous chef’s and restauranteurs. I’ve been a part of the South Florida Wine and Food Festival since its inception and food and wine has always been a part of my radio show and personality. We’re all about entertaining, and great wine and food are always big part of that. In fact, that’s how my journey to vineyard owner began, meeting Eros Spinozzi, now a dear friend and an Italian wine exporter, his introduction of my family to the Galasso family of the San Lorenzo winery, and bonding over wine and food in Abruzzo. Then, in what can only be explained as fate, randomly sitting next to Bruce Hunter (President of Shaw Ross wines) on our return flight to the US and him knowing Eros and importing wine from the Galasso family . After many glasses of wine (and quite a few bowls of pasta) and a lot of laughs, a partnership was born and now we get to share a little bit of Italy with you. We hope you enjoy the first of many wines from Castronovo Vineyards, our 2007 Montepulciano D’Abruzzo. Serve it with pasta, steak, pizza or even a spicy seafood dish, but more importantly, enjoy it with friends. Sincerely, Paul Castronovo President Castronovo Vineyards
