Valle Reale San Calisto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2009

External Review:

Deep, ruby-red in color, San Calisto offers layered aromas of ripe blackberries and crushed black cherries, followed by spicy notes of cassis, leather and Mediterranean wildflowers. On the palate, its firm structure is elegantly softened by its silky, rich mouthfeel. San Calisto is excellent with sharp cheeses, barbecued ribs, lamb, filet mignon or steak au poivre. - Winery

The 2005 Montepulciano drsquo;Abruzzo San Calisto saw a fairly long maceration of 25 days followed by 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. The wine blossoms on the palate with an intense floral quality that is followed by layers of blueberries, spices, mint and sweet oak. The finish is long, pure and refined. This is an especially exuberant, richly-textured Montepulciano to enjoy over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2015.

Dieser Cru ist absolut sauber und sehr komplex in der Nase. Das Bukett wird von tiefdunklen Früchten beherrscht, wobei gerade das Brombeer-Aroma gut definiert ist. Auch wärmende Gewürze, Kaffee und Schokolade laden zum Geniessen dieses Weines ein und sind sowohl mit dem balsamischen Einschlag von Gewürznelken als auch mit dem mineralischen Ton von nassen Steinen gut verbunden. Der körperreiche Geschmack zeigt sich voll, betont strukturiert, von angenehmster Frische und erstaunlicher Länge.
