Liked this wine! Very smooth without even airing- on the dry side with a lean toward heavier tannins at the end. Should drink with stronger foods.

Cherry, light tobacco, some earth. Smooth, silky tannin. Nicely balanced, well-executed.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo in purezza. Abbinato ad un arrosto e non hai bisogno d'altro. Sembra fatto su misura. Sempre ottimi vini dai Poderi Castorani.

A really good montepulciano! Spices, licorice, vanilla, roses, wild berries, elegant tannins, long and persistent.
