Poderi Crisci Montepulciano 2018
- New Zealand, 750ml
A very well balanced wine offering leather, berry and rosemary notes on the nose. The palate is smooth, refined and complex offering lots of earthy dark berry notes, a hint of cinnamon and spices compliment the silken tannins leading to a long, pleasant off dry finish. Wild mushrooms and anise compliment the medium mouth feel the wine has to offer.

"This Montepulciano is one of three classic Italian varieties that Poderi Crisci produces, alongside our Arneis and Nebbiolo. A great addition to our portfolio and we love it. The wine is especially well received in the restaurant being a food wine par excellence with its very rich flavour and powerful yet velvety tannins." Poderi Crisci
Immersed in the art of food and wine for four generations, the Poderi Crisci winery is an invitation to appreciate the finer things in life, a destination with layers of experience. A family-owned vineyard with flair for all things Italian and a passion for traditional winemaking, this slice of Tuscany in the infamous Waiheke Island wine region will transport you to a simpler time just by tasting their wine!
Napoli-raised Antonio Crisci arrived in New Zealand in the early 90’s, quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland hospitality scene while setting his sights on a winery where tradition would meet innovation and give people a taste for distinctly Italian wine blends. Planting the very first merlot vines in early 2000, the family have stayed true to old world styled wine and grape varieties, while providing the ultimate winery experience for locals and tourists alike.
Time-honoured traditions and commitment to flavour are just a few reasons why “things just taste better at Poderi Crisci”.
Poderi Crisci's restaurant has received the recognition of being a Metro Top 50 restaurant as well as being listed in the Cuisine Good Food Guide containing the best 70 restaurants in New Zealand. It is also a stunning venue for weddings, private events for up to 100 guests. Just arriving at Poderi Crisci you may well think that you have been transported to Tuscany.
