La Valentina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017
|Region||Italy, Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo|
Good full ruby. Bright aromas of ink, licorice and dark fruit on the nose. Then easygoing and fresh, though the reticent red and dark fruit flavors are somewhat suppressed by the hot weather of the 2017 growing season. Closes with very good verve and length.
This wine is closed on the nose, offering a quiet tin-can tone. Light in feel, the fruit is not very intense on the palate, showing a straightforward juicy red-cherry note. Gentle tannins ride alongside bright acidity to lend support.
