Wine Notes: Montepulciano D’Abruzzo

Colle Secco

Wine Notes: Montepulciano D’Abruzzo and pizza, you really can’t ask for a better match! The Cantino Tollo Colle Secco is no exception, but its food pairing capabilities are not limited to just pizza. Medium bodied with a lovely garnet hue in the glass, the Colle Secco has lots of dark cherry and spice on the nose, and on the palate food friendly freshness, soft tannins and layers of plum, blackberry and dried herbs. Try Colle Secco at home with your favourite pasta, tomato dishes and braised meats and at NOVO Pizzeria the wine will pair up well with almost everything on the menu. Try it with the Panzanella Salad, Fresh Ricotta di Bufala, it is exceptional with the Butcher’s Tagliatelle al Ragu Bolognese, and of course it is incredible with all of the pizzas!
