La Quercia is our best selling Montepulciano producer and consistently makes high quality wines year after year. This ‘Colline Teramane’ bottling is a special reserve wine and yes 2010 is the current release. A special selection of perfectly ripe grapes are picked for this wine which then undergo a long maceration prior to extended oak aging. This creates a big, complex and rich Montepulciano wine with plenty of earth, spice and tannic structure. This wine shows that Montepulciano can be elevated to a serious, ageworthy wine. La Quercia calls it a “meditation wine” and recommends letting the wine breathe for a few hours prior to drinking.
