    Winemaker's Notes:

    At first sight the deep, intense ruby red color of the wine is striking, with small violet arches. The bouquet suggests red fruit, rose petals and hints of wet spices. It is soft and warm to the palate with notes of red prune, cherry and blueberry which are harmoniously intertwined around a lively tannic theme. Being fruit of an exceptional harvest, gives it a full, enveloping body, which finishes with liquorice and cloves. The fine performance is completed with an after-taste of black pepper and cranberry. This wine may be drunk immediately or laid down for 5 years. It is ideal to accompany pasta timbale, lamb stew, char-grilled cod and seasoned, pecorino cheese. Drink immediately or keep for 5 years too.

    Critical Acclaim:

    La Valentina's 2008 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above most of its peers in this price range. Dark cherries, juicy plums and spices are some of the notes that emerge from this juicy, highly pleasurable Montepulciano. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
