About the Wine

If you’re looking for amazing wine at a great price, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is your go-to. James Suckling described Montepulciano as “solid, rich, easy-to-like, and best of all wallet-friendly wines.”

Tenuta Ulisse is located in the beautiful region of Abruzzo. This winery was founded in 2006 and today, it is a flagship for the winemaking revival of this Italian wine region.

The winery is owned and managed by brothers Antonio and Luige Ulisse, two passionate winemakers who pour their heart and soul into their family winery. Ulisse brothers have managed to perfectly combine the modernity of the new winemaking with the centennial traditions. Their vision is “Touse the most expressive and unique terroirs of Abruzzo to create Abruzzo fine wine of distinction." 

Ulisse winery is located at about 9 miles from the Adriatic Sea. This is translated in a magnificent terroir that is beneficed by maritime influence. The vineyards are planted with autochthones grapes like  Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Pecorino, Passerina y Cococciola.

Amaranta Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a cru wine obtained from Abruzzo’ s most important red grape, the Montepulciano. This wine represents the Tenuta’s commitment to producing outstanding, real wines, that can truly represent the terroir of Abruzzo.

Aging: 9-12 months in French and American barrels. 

Tasting Notes: 100% Montepulciano. Ruby red with garnet reflections, intense and persistent fragrance; the bouquet is intense, fruity, and persistent, with notes of dried flowers, spice, licorice, and marasca cherries. The palate is stylish, velvety, almost creamy, and compact with a tannic structure that blends nicely with the alcoholic component. Great structure, complex, elegant, well balanced with a long aftertaste. Opulent fruit. Ideal for roasts, game, strongly flavored dishes, and mature cheese.
