Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Deep ruby, purple-red color; clean, bright vibrant, lingering aromas with hints of saffron, red berries, blackberries and black cherries. It has a rich, rounded palate full of clean, ripe red berries and a well-balanced, full textured finish. This is a great example of the montepulciano grape variety made in a style that is both traditional and modern. Serve with substantial first courses with game sauces, grilled meats and richly textured fish dishes. Drink immediately or keep for 5 years too.
"The 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a big super-ripe, jammy wine bursting with fruit. Some rough edges remain, but that is a relatively small critique for a wine that delivers so much sheer pleasure at this price point. La Valentina's Montepulciano will make a great house wine and is an excellent choice for casual drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014."
