Montepulciano is one of Italy's great value reds, particularly when sourced from top producers such as Rocco Pasetti at Contesa. Aromas of black cherry, forest fruits, ripe black plums with a vibrant streak of freshness and liveliness. Reasonably full bodied but this is not a heavy wine: deliciously light on its feet, which shows expert winemaking and excellent quality grape.

Contesa is a 30 hectare estate in Abruzzo in southern central Italy run by father and son team of Rocco and Franco Pasetti. Rocco comes from a long line of winemakers in the region, I first encountered his wines when he was winemaker at the co-op in Rosciano in the mid nineties, but now, since 2004, has established his own winery. Rocco & Franco make wine that are robust and full of flavour but always with a sense of authenticity of style. The estate is not officially organic, but they have eschewed the use of chemical weedkillers
