JOHN GILBERT IS NO STRANGER WITH THIS CLASSIC ITALIAN STYLE GRAPE, HAND-PICKED, WHOLE BUNCH FERMENT AGED IN FRENCH OAK HOGSHEAD TO SOFTEN THE TANNINS. LIVELY FRESH RED BERRY FRUITS CONTRASTING SPICY TANNINS WITH HINTS OF CARDAMOM. MEDIUM-BODIED RED WINES LIKE MONTEPULCIANO GENERALLY PAIR WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF FOODS DUE TO NATURAL ELEVATED ACIDITY. HOWEVER, WITH MONTEPULCIANO, THE ROBUST HERBAL AND TOBACCO-LIKE FLAVOURS WITH GRIPPY TANNIN OFTEN CALL FOR RICHER AND MORE SAVOURY FOODS. MONTEPULCIANO WILL CUT THROUGH SOME OF THE MEATIEST MEATS (LIKE BEEF BRISKET)
