Importer notes from Dalla Terra:

"The Spelt Montepulciano d'Abruzzo represents a fuller-bodied version of this traditional wine compared with La Valentina's Montepulciano d'Abruzzo in the Classica line. It is made with the first selection of Montepulciano grapes from the vineyards. In addition, all of the wine for Spelt is aged in wood, for a total of 18 months. The result is a more robust and complex wine. The name Spelt refers to a type of wheat (faro in Italian) that once grew where the La Valentina winery and village of Spoltore (whose name itself derives from spelt) are now located."
