Sweet Luxardo cherries and tobacco interplay with dry tannins in this savory red. Notes of cinnamon and spiced clove keep its nature complex as the finish trails off with heather and espresso.
"Jorio is Umani Ronchi’s selected Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC. It was created in the mid-nineties to express the great potential of this varietal, in collaboration with fanatically dedicated Abruzzese winegrowers with vineyards in particularly favourable areas for its growth. The name of the wine is intended as a tribute to the great twentieth-century Abruzzese poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, who made his wild, provincial native soil into a “barbaric” novelty, exciting and transgressive, with which he stirred and won the public’s favour. Here is D’Annunzio’s dedication to his pastoral tragedy The daughter of Jorio: “To the land of Abruzzi, to my mother, to my sisters, to my brother in exile, to my buried father, to all my dead, to all my people between the mountains and the sea, this song of ancient blood I consecrate." - Winery
