Inalto-Vini d’Altura di Adolfo De Cecco, Inalto in Rosso, Vino Rosso 2016

No doubt you will have heard of and seen the globally famous Italian pasta brand called ‘De Cecco’ which has been family owned since 1886.  After becoming a sommelier, Adolfo De Cecco started a project to create a world-class Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine. .He pitched the concept to Thomas Duroux, winemaker and general manager of Chateau Palmer – a famous Margaux Third Growth vineyard in Bordeaux.  Duroux was immediately intrigued by the project, so much so that he came to Abruzzo immediately. After touring the entire region,  De Cecco and Duroux arrived in Ofena, in the province of Aquila, an area almost 500 metres above sea level. This, they decided, was the perfect location to focus on a wine that could be refined and elegant.

When they found the perfect vineyards,  INALTO was born. where the micro-climate softens the tannins and gives the wine elegance, freshness and structure.  In terms of body, excellent balance between softness and the freshness that remains the trademark of this fine wine. You immediately notice an excellent harmony. The red fruit is always predominant, but then the black pepper becomes more evident and opens the door to a long finish that gently pinches the tongue.
