LA VALENTINA SPELT MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZO 2015

68 Current Inventory

This is Riserva-level and what happens when Montepulciano steps it up a few notches.  

The combination of premium fruit, barrel aging and some extra time in the cellar result in a totally different animal compared to the normal table wine we know of as Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.  Still from the same place but with lots of extra love and attention.  The plum fruit makes way for subtle hints of balsamic, a hint of pepper spice and more earth. The already low acidity is softened even further. The result is a beautiful, balanced, super-smooth medium bodied wine with well integrated tannins.  Pair with a chunk of grilled red meat.

92 POINTS, James Suckling, formally of Wine Spectator. "A rich and layered red with dark berries, chocolate, and spice. Medium body, very fine tannins and a delicious finish. Balanced and ready."
