Winemaker Notes: Villa Barcaroli is located in the heart of a production area that has been focused on vine growing for a very long time with special attention to native varietals of the area such as Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano.

Food Pairing: Montepulciano goes extremely well with meaty pizzas and fatty beef burgers. Other meats that fare well with this wine include roast pork, beef brisket, and shepherds pie.

Other Notes: Dating to the 17th century, the villa has been owned for over fifty years by the Bartolomei family, who have preserved the villa and its vineyards, as well as a cellar of great Montepulciano d’Abruzzo dating back to 1954.
