Valle Reale Vigne Nouve 2007
Ruby-red in color, this wine is surprisingly concentrated. With silky tannins and layers of dark berry fruit and spices, this is a rich and aromatic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Full-bodied and firm, yet supple, it is ready to be enjoyed with hearty pasta dishes, roasted poultry or lamb, and ribs.
Loved this smooth fruit forward deep red wine. Blackberry plum and hint of chocolate. Braised short ribs out. Maybe I liked it more knowing will visit Abruzzo this summer.

WA 91pts - Winemaker Notes - From an almost impenetrable ruby colour that reveals itself with violet tones, opens an intense nose that registers clear mineral notes of graphite and dark fruit, blackberry in primis, and draws on the deep end slightly balsamic nuances. The taste is always very soft and enveloping thanks to the sweetness of the tannins. The typical acid vein of these grapes, that gives a pleasant sense of freshness, also gives to the wine a dynamic taste that makes it better to appreciate the structure and the depth. In the long finish the mature nuances of fruit of the bouquet return.
