Absolutely sublime example of the skill of a vintner to tame and tease the best out of a rugged grape. — 4 days ago

Il Vino Dal Tralcetto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2019

NOSE: blackberry and blueberry - juicy and fresh. Mild baking spice. Smells simple but inviting.

TASTE: quite pleasant. Soft (but not too soft - enough tannin and heft and nice acidity to balance), fruity (dark berries as the nose). Finishes with cherry and a little woody tannin, but still silky, Perfect example of simple, approachable wine done very well - no off tastes whatever. This is enjoyable and a good deal for the $13 I paid, in my opinion. 90.

This was just gorgeous - so elegant, so much style, and I believe this will only improve w/age due to impressive concentration & balance. Ripe black & red fruit, whirlwind of tertiary notes - just kept evolving. Smooth, finely grained tannins & suave acidity. — 11 days ago

Part of Italian wine tasting night. Full body deep rich d’Abruzzo. Jammy rich beet notes. A bit heavy for my liking or drink in the winter with a nice warm ragu. — 3 days ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2020

More than just a pretty label. Very good value wine for everyday use. Agree with comment from earlier vintage. Describing day 2 after opening. Starts sweet, then spicy, then finishes with a musky undergrowth. Somewhat dense with subtle tannins. Fruit is a huckleberry/fig melange. Overall unique and interesting. — 15 days ago

Biologico Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2019

Bright ruby color. Nice aromas of black berry/plums and ever present rosemary, eucalyptus and sage. The pallet is fruit forward with flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and a slight note of baking spices. Medium minus body with smooth tannins and bright acidity. (Very Beaujolais-like) The finish was just a bit on the short side. — 15 days ago
