Wow this showed all the hallmarks of the Montepulciano grape in a regal, slick and balanced frame. Impressive.

Wow! Just wow. Hard to explain but must be tried at least once. It’s a wild wine

An interesting one to start with for my first bottle of Valentini... I need to try the wine when it's young.

Rome: Rosciololi. I am glad to say this bottle was great, but (most happily) no more so than the ones at home. The bombollotti alla amatriciana, however was much better.

What?! Is this coffee? Crazy nose. To be frank, I thought it was a reductive tone - first whiff looked sort of rubbery, but was instantly veered towards coffee by the group. Strawberry, cherries, some floral and earthy notes ensue. Palate was brilliant! Concentrated, mind-boggling yellow stone fruits and apples, chewy, orange oil, mushroom, very mineral, refreshing acidity. Only caught a glass, but definitely better than my last experience with this wine - a 03' in Munich. Didn't feel like it was 14%, but I guess that'll really kick in if there was more to go around. Time to track down a bottle!
