The wine is fairly large in stature with flavors of crushed black pepper and red fruits along with marjoram and coriander. The wine is dark ruby red with a purple tinge and displays a aromas and flavors of crushed berries and exotic spice. In Jewish texts, Samael is better known as the ‘Angel of Death.’ It is believed that Samael is both good and evil in that he does the work of God but desires man to do evil. Samael is viewed as a seducer as was first spoken of in the Talmud as assuming the role of the serpent and tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden.The correlation here is that Montepulciano can be a very alluring and seductive grape that lends itself to pleasurable drinking. That said, often time Montepulciano is simple, thin and insipid. It is both good and bad.
