Here are samples from our Italian Wine import portfolio:

Italian Vinum Hannibal

 

 

This wine has character, in the name and in the substance, and for years has represented the spirit of the producers. Hannibal, in Phoenician language, means ‘gift of Baal’; this accentuates
the almost divine features that destiny assigned to those who bore this name.  

The name Vinum Hannibal recalls the history of the passage of the Carthaginian commander - during his descent from the Alps to the conquest in Rome, around the 217 B.C. - through Abruzzo and, according to the testimonies, he tasted the wine abandoned from fleeing farmers in the wine cellars.

The slavonian oak barrels of 20 hectoliters accommodate Vinum Hannibal - Montepulciano of Abruzzo Doc selection Granaro - for one year, after refinement in steel barrels.

Six months more in bottle assures its correct maturity.
