Deep ruby red, recalls plums and red cherries on the nose, followed by balsamic and salty notes on a background of ripe liquorice. With eloquent and clean tannins in the mouth, it comes across as full and vigorous, with a long and intense finish.
The 2009 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Jorio comes across as quite open and lush as it caresses the palate. Sleek tannins and a final burst of ripe red fruit inform the finish. The 2009 looks to be a relatively early drinking wine, but that shouldn't be an issue here, as the bottles probably won't be around too long. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
