Pelago joined the list of the most sought-after Italian wines in the world in 1997 in its first year of production when it won the Best Red Wine Trophy at the International Wine Challenge in London.
Pelago is a blend of Montepulciano and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine which retains the style and personality of Montepulciano while broadening its aromatic profile and complexity by adding qualities of the Bordeaux varieties. To maintain high standards of quality it is produced only in excellent vintages.
Impenetrable ruby red colour with purple tints. On the nose, intense, clean and refined aromas are released: spicy fragrances of coffee, black pepper, liquorice and tobacco open out on a background of grass and hay, typical of Cabernet. In the mouth, the impact is of fruits of the forest, vanilla and mineral aromas, and strong but developed tannins with taste sensations in harmony with the wine’s full body.
