Stilla Rubra Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

Deep nose of dark berry fruits, dark cherry fruits and chunky earth and wet soil. Somewhat refined which is unusual for MDA. Palate is super concentrated and sleek. Good purity and concentration. Terrific refinement. Velvety tannins and superb finesse. Lovely tiny berry fruit intensity and length. Like if one of the polished traditional Rhone guys (Durand, Tunnel) made MDA. Lovely stuff and lots of upside. Gets more rustic and charming while retaining its sleek fruit. Stoney tannins. Very ripe. Terrific. — 3 days ago

Estate Grown Yadkin Valley Montepulciano

Quite a solid effort on first take…I’d need to interview the dev team to understand how it got to where it is. While a touch edgy with it’s grippy acid, The fruit profile and tannin component are compelling. For the price, $17, this should be on Fox radar for every day food utility — 17 days ago

v17. Big wine totally over delivers. Crushed berries and violet nose. Rich, deep, black cherry and tar fruit. Full bodied, dry astringent finish. Pretty wild , but good. — 17 days ago

Valle Reale

Vigneto di Popoli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015

This wine is medium dark with aromas of black cherry, cassis and blackberry wafting up from the glass. There is also a bit of leather, tobacco and pencil lead. The palate offers cherry, licorice and baking spices, along with a nice acidity and medium-firm tannins. The sip is really enjoyable, but it pairs well with a steak or anything Bolognese. — 17 days ago

La Bandita e Lunadoro

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2016

Classic old school. Nose has macerated cherry, sweet spice, old barrel scents, loamy gravel. In the mouth it’s full and a little on the leaner side, with rich dark cherry and leather, and lots of savory minerals on the finish. Tannins soft, pretty good acidity. Right over the middle of the plate. — 16 days ago
