7 Top Montepulciano d’Abruzzo tasted in 7/2014

7. Arboreto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (2012)

« Prev 7 of 7
Previously available for $10.99
Very pretty on the nose with hints of blue fruit, dried flowers, a bit of a meaty edge and some peppery background notes. Focused in direct in the mouth, this shows off early flashes of blue fruits before settling down with some spicy black berry and black plum flavors. it’s in a leaner style with good acids and soft tannins, but what is really appealing is the purity of the aromatic fruit on the palate and the relative lightness this displays. The finish shows a return to the blue fruit of the entry, and while this doesn’t have great length is fresh and fun as it leaves the palate. 86pts
