Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2000

Stunning bottle! Far less dark and brooding than 2006, the uber rare 2000 Montepulciano is elegant, seamless and impeccably detailed. It’s layered with crazy depth of aromatics that soar flaunting BBQ spice, espresso, dried flowers and red fruit. It has off the charts complexity and a wild untamed nature to its expression that is as intriguing as it comes. The palate is precise, pure and balanced with a stunningly elegant texture and incredible length. Masterful wine. — 11 days ago

I get this typical aged chardonnay scent on the nose (which it is not obviously), combined with the horse stable smell at my parents 😛
Turbent deep yellow. Very round on the palate, no sharp edges and low acidity. Can use some additional cellar time to gain more complexity

Tons of juicy blackberry and some green notes on the nose. More blackberry and a little spice on the palate, nice bright acidity, very tannic but not abrasive. Really enjoyed this, I've only had a couple really poor quality montepulciano before so this was eye opening on what the grape can offer.

A little closed and unbalanced at first. Put back in the fridge for a few more hours and then this was singing. Absolutely gorgeous wine once it had the chance to open up. Incredibly pure. — a day ago
