Cancelli Rosato Montepulciano

Nose > palate. Nose bursts with flowers—primarily violets—and fruit. Palate has the same but slightly subdued. Cherry, violets, and mouthwatering acidity. Fruits lean lighter, but a dash of raspberry mixed in with the watermelon. — 11 days ago

Umani Ronchi

Jorio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Easy to drink , 11 years vintage! Enough concentration with acidity. Matured black fruits taste. 9.0 is due to 11 years. 2010 @800, Xuheng, 210427-210505 — 8 days ago

Cantina Zaccagnini

Il Vino Dal Tralcetto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2018

Deep garnet with some inky purple depth. Tart cherry, strawberry, and blackberry for a bit of depth. Brambly. Plenty of acid makes for a great food wine. Really solid. — 11 days ago

Amorotti

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is fruit-forward and intense, showing balsamic-spiced raspberry with exotic florals and cherry tobacco. Velvety textures are firmed up by a more savory set of red and blue fruits. Brisk acids add further energy, creating a perfectly balanced expression. This is long and structured, tugging at the cheeks with grippy tannins and lingering minerals, yet its primary fruit remains front and center. Although you’d expect the 2016 Amorotti to be a bigger wine from its bouquet, instead it handles its 14% abv with ease and will likely improve with a few years of cellaring.

Tiberio

Colline Pescaresi Pecorino 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Pecorino is a more elegant and savory expression of the variety, wafting up notes of green melon, geranium, hints of citrus and spring flowers. It’s silky upon entry, contrasted by bright acidity and tart orchard fruits, yet also with a cooling hint of fresh mint. This tapers off crunchy and nervous in feel, with cheek-puckering freshness and salty minerality. Enjoy the 2019 today for its pretty personality or through short-term cellaring. I must admit to finding its fragile personality quite appealing, and it’s such a contrast to most of the Pecorino coming out of the region today. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021)

Solid. Chоkeberry. Some dark fruits dried to the extent of a soy sauce. At some point a glimpse of raw shortcrust pastry — 11 days ago

Dal Tralcetto Colline Pescaresi Pinot Grigio 2019

Didn’t think I was a Pinot Grigio gal til i started drinking the real stuff from Italy. Loves this especially at the price ($12 at Costco). Refreshing, crisp apples, tart, acidic bite, rather dry. Would love to have again. Great on a warm summer day — a month ago

Torre dei Beati

Giocheremo Con i Fiori Abruzzo Pecorino 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

This captivating Pecorino shows a bouquet of candied ginger with dusty florals, wild herbs, incense and crushed green apple. Silky and rich, yet balanced by stimulating acids and mineral-tinged orchard fruits, it tapers off spicy with a hint of sour melon that keeps the palate wanting more. $22.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2021) — 24 days ago
