Wine of the Week #1508: Mr Riggs Montepulciano 

Winemaker Ben Riggs love affair with Montepulciano began during his days as a “flying winemaker” – working harvest in central and southern Italy and it was these early impressions which inspired his vision for an Australian take on iconic Italian flavours. Typcially, the wines made from this variety are full bodied with deep colour, spice and plum flavours and high levels of tannin. They usually require some bottle aging and are well paired with hearty Italian cuisine or sharp cheeses.
