Pietramore

Abruzzo Superiore Pecorino

Pecorino made its way back in the 80s from practically becoming extinct. This is a lovely Pecorino at 14%, beautiful aromatics, some spicy notes and nice acidity. Served chilled on a warm night with pizza. — 2 days ago

Tiberio

Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 Tiberio Cerasuolo is wonderfully fresh and perfumed, showing depths of smoky minerals on the nose, giving way to notes of ripe strawberry and wild flowers, with a hint of crushed limestone and chalk. On the palate, silky textural depths are offset by saline-minerality and brisk acids, as notes of cherry with a hint of orange citrus wash across the senses. The finish is long, with a twang of tart red berry and hints of wild herbs, almost salty, and begging me to take another sip. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2020) — 13 days ago

ERA

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Dry fruits, fresh and flowery ... Simple, dry and beautiful with an smooth mineral finish that was completely unexpected on a wine without a cork... Brief and maybe not complex but really enjoyable. Big big value for the price ... — 15 days ago

Cantine Torri

420 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Full body. Long legs - stretching to the max. Big, deep, ripe fruit, dark chocolate mixed in. Interesting on the nose - you might think you’ll fall over when taking a proper sniff. Surprising depth for an Italian wine but then again it’s a montepulciano. Definitely goes well with red meat and ..let’s say chocolate deserts. — 5 days ago

Tiberio

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017

Crushed black cherries, blueberry skins, sage, stone dust and hints of animal musk, all come together to form a deeply satisfying bouquet on the 2017 Tiberio Montepulciano. On the palate, soft, round textures give way to a twang of tart wild berry fruits, complemented by saline-minerals and then firmed up with grippy tannins. The finish is long and structured, yet still packed with spicy primary fruits and remaining fresh through residual acids. I know Cristiana isn’t a big fan of her warmer vintage wines, but the 2017 has the stuffing to improve in our cellars while still pleasing today. — 25 days ago

Gold color. Honeysuckle, oily, waxy medicinal smell that others have noted = correct.
