Description

2015 THP Montepulciano

THP Montepulciano was created by winemakers that believe in the magic of blended wines. This blend is composed entirely of Texas High Plains grapes, fermented as separate parcels, and blended to achieve a balanced wine of complexity. This terroir-driven wine is highly perfumed with complex ripe aromatics of blackberries, cherries, savory notes of tomatoes, and oregano, with just a kiss of oak. This is a medium-bodied wine with refreshing acidity and soft, lush tannins. THP blends were intended to be enjoyed at the dinner table. These varieties come together to create a savory effect when paired with food. Enjoy it tonight with your favorite pasta or gourmet pizza.

As a varietal not traditionally produced in Texas, this is a rarity! Aged in barrels made from a combination of French oak sourced from the heart of France and American oak sourced from Kentucky and Minnesota, this Montepulciano wine is complex, balanced, and a wonderful take on the varietal!
