Indigenous to Italy, and brought to us by the Orsi Family in Dry Creek, Montepulciano is a varietal that has a deep ruby color and produces a juice with a soft flavors reminiscent of plum jam. Blended with a light Kolsch ale and refermented in oak.
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours slightly pinkish gold with a transient white head. Aroma is "barrel", seems to have a slight sour note. Med body. Flavor is mildly grape, though it seems more white berry than red berry. It’s not quite dry. It’s very fruity - arguably plum; arguably a sour note, but then it’s rather oaky, so hard to parse. It is incredibly delicious.
