Montepulciano

Garofoli

Piancarda Montepulciano

Made some homemade sausage and some greens. Grilled it and opened this for a Marchegiani dinner. Not as unruly as a few vintages I be had, but very good. Rosso conero is the DOC. All montepulciano. — 14 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

Gattavecchi

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2016

The Gattavecchi family has been making wine in Montepulciano since the1950s, with the purchase of the Poggio alla Sala estate. Ruby with aromas of red berry, herb and floral notes. On the palate tart cherry and raspberry with spice and earthy herb notes. Firm tannins on medium finish ending with some earthy oak. Good now and over next 1-2 years. — 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

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
