Nicodemi Montepulciano d' Abruzzo Colline Teramane DOCG La Murate 2017, Abruzzo

Fattoria Nicodemi is in Notaresco, in the heart of the Colline Teramane zone. The hilly estate covers a single plot of 38 hectares, of which 30 are under vine. The land, at about 300 metres in altitude, is aspected to the south east, with Mount Gran Sasso watching its back, and the sea at about 10 kilometres, ruffling the air with cool breezes in summer. The vines here are planted in rich clay and limestone soils that give the wines the character the Nicodemis seek, benefiting from healthy day-night temperature ranges, and ventilation for ripening fruit.
