Valentini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

*The estate's 2006 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is gorgeous*. Sweet floral notes lead to a burst of dark red fruit as this energetic Montepulciano shows off its class. Smoke, ash, tar, licorice and a host of other aromas and flavors develop in the glass, adding further layers of depth and complexity. This is a decidedly muscular, intense wine that will require patience. As always, it is a touch rustic in its youth, but Valentini's wines have a way of acquiring elegance in bottle.

Valentini's red Montepulciano is only made in the best years. This is his first release since 2002 and it's a show stopper.
