2020 Torre Zambra Montepulciano d’Abruzzo “Colle Maggio”
Situated in the rolling hills of Abruzzo along Italy’s Adriatic coast, Torre Zambra calls the commune of Villamagna home. The brand makes several different bottlings, and Colle Maggio represents the entry-level for their more serious line. Rhône-like in character, its aromas are of plums, dark berries, oak spice, earth, and forest floor. It’s versatile enough to enjoy on its own or paired with heartier fare. I like this wine with filled pasta and chicken broth.
