Alcohol/vol 13%
La Valentina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is an excellent example of the Abruzzo region's most characteristic wine-a hearty red wine made from 100% Montepulciano grapes. This is the red entry in La Valentina's Classica line, which showcases the traditional wines of Abruzzo at their best. Pair with typical local salumi, pasta aglio e olio ( garlic and olive oil), arrosticini, porchetta, grilled chicken, and brodetto di pesce ( local fish soup).

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.
