TASTING NOTES:

'Lumen’ is a ‘Super-Abruzzo’ blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon for a more international approach. Made only in the best vintages.

Dark, ruby in color, Lumen opens with notes of blackberry, red currant, and ripe red fruits which continue onto the palate which is rich and opulent yet well-balanced, well-structured and elegant. A wine of great personality and an inviting finish. Lumen with age well. It is best enjoyed with red meats, game, lamb, and spicy/aged cheeses.

Although still somewhat obscure, Controguerra is a DOC in Abruzzo, established in 1996 thanks to the persistent effort of a few, local winegrowers, including long-time advocate Dino Illuminati. He helped bring Controguerra into the limelight by combining his innovative ideas with tradition as it included wines produced from international varieties along with natives.
