Gran Sasso Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2011

Member Review by dmfurey:

Gran Sasso 2005 wasn't easy to find, but if you can find it, I would recommend trying it. 2006 is not as good in my opinion but a fair wine.

Gran Sasso:
Gran Sasso is a wine project developed between friends Valentino Sciotti and Camillo De Iuliis, which involves wineries from three different regions in Italy. The company is based in the Abruzzo region of central Italy, where the Gran Sasso d'Italia (Great Stone of Italy) is the main attraction of the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga. The wines are sourced from low-yielding vineyards, focusing on quality over quantity.

Valentino Sciotti is involved with a number of wineries in Puglia, Campania (he is the man behind Vesevo) and his native Abruzzi. The Gran Sasso wines are made by young winemaker Marco Flacco and display a freshness and directness of fruit that is seldom found in this region. Most Montepulciano at this price comes either from negociants buying bulk wines or from co-ops, neither of whom work as well or as closely with their growers as Valentino and his team. The grapes for this wine are grown in 15-20 year old vineyards in the production zones of Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri. This wine is deep ruby red in colour with garnet reflections. It is clean, fresh and plummy on the nose, rich, supple and accessible on the palate. It is balanced and full-bodied with good tannins. The fresh, primary fruit characters are maximised by the fact that it does not age in oak, making it approachable and ready to drink. - Winery
