Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story  Montepulciano is likely to have originated in Tuscany and is now widely planted throughout central and southern Italy. It's one of the dominant grape varieties in the Abruzzo region in central / eastern Italy and produces medium-bodied wines that are deep in colour with rich tannins and savoury flavours.

Nose The Hand Crafted Montepulciano exhibits aromas of blackberries, plums and black cherries, followed by hints of chocolate.

Palate The palate offers black cherries, boysenberries and plums, which is complemented by great acidity.

Food Pairings This wine goes really well with Italian style lamb with a herbed couscous.
