Food Pairings for Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Editorial Reviews for Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Showing hints of evolution on the nose, this displays subtle fruit framed with hints of forest floor, mushrooms, and candied red cherries. Smooth and bright on entry, this is admirably broad on the palate while remaining transparent with lovely softening tannins supporting earthy and everso leathery dried strawberry and cherry fruit on the palate. the finish is fairly long, clean and precise with lovely wild cherry flavors. The tannins are a touch dry though and the peak out a bit on the finale but this is actually quite long because of that. 88pts

dark ruby color...hints of blackberries on the nose...very light on the palette with some nice fruit flavor and a short dry finish.
loaded with berry fruit, red currants on the nose as well. palate extends to new oak, some vanilla spices coupled with bitter black cherries, very easy to drink and of a great value.
Scents of spice, sweet licorice, earthy. Dry, wet wood, musty finish.
Not much flavor... Easy to drink, but unexceptional
Have to say i love the nose, a dark black cherry or raspberry with a very strong sense of vanilla creaminess beautiful nose. Also has a bit of old world funkiness and must. Taste is sour cherry and still very old world and what you would expect from many Italian wines with that funky barnyard kinda earthiness. Slight dryness on the finish but not over powering tannins. Would make a very nice food wine with a lot decently hearty dishes. Short to moderate but decent finish. Lots of acidity and plenty of the trademark acidity from the region. A good but not the best abruzzo I have by a long shot.
External Reviews for Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Spicy, fruity and nicely rounded, this wine boasts great flavor intensity without the sharp points sometimes associated with Montepulciano. Itrsquo;s an easy, approachable wine perfect for everyday dining with solid tannins and good length.
The 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is hard to beat for the money. Red cherries, tobacco and licorice are some of the nuances that emerge from this mid-weight, vinous red. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.
Warm, toasty aromas give way to flavors of savory cherries and herbs. Soft and delicious!
Rustic and medicinal in its initial scents, this is a red-fruited wine, as honest as the tannin is long. Oak gives it a caramelized-onion sweetness to balance with beef stew.
The 2005 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a simple, straightforward wine with good red fruit prefect for casual, informal drinking. At $10 a bottle it is virtually impossible to beat for value.
Spicy, fruity and nicely rounded, this wine boasts great flavor intensity without the sharp points sometimes associated with Montepulciano. It's an easy, approachable wine perfect for everyday dining with solid tannins and good length.
A tight and firm wine, with coffee, tobacco and light raisin character. Medium-bodeid, with good fruit, but slightly hard on the finish.
