Villa Medoro "Rosso del Duca" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

This "Tre Bicchieri" winner is not your typical Montepulciano!

(2/2016) Most often, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a simple everyday charmer. Perfect with pizza and pasta, these can be quite tasty and often available for around ten bucks. What many do not know is that there are a few producers in the region making entirely more complex wines! Villa Medoro is a small family-owned property, we've had their regular bottling for a few vintages and love it. When we tasted this single-vineyard "Rosso del Duca", we were floored - so much that we bought the entire U.S. allocation! It is incredible. A glass-staining bright purple-ruby color pleases the eye as floral-tinged aromas of cassis, plum and blackberry entertain the nose. Given an hour or two in a decanter, secondary notes of smoke, iron, olive and limestone unfurl. A complex and expansive palate finishes long with soft tannins, this is unlike any wine we have had before, with outrageous tension and vivacity. We're in love!

(11/2016). "A chewy and tannic wine with blackberry and dark-chocolate character plus hints of nutmeg. Full to medium body, chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish."

Marramiero "Dama" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014

90 Our Score
(3/2017) Marramiero's DaMa (DAnte MArramiero) line includes this 2014 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, the winery's entry-level wine of this varietal. Sourced from several different vineyard plots of various exposures, the wine spends 8-10 months in stainless steel following fermentation before being racked into used barriques for a further 8-10 months aging. Dark in color, the wine offers primary aromas and flavors of black cherry and plum with secondary notes of leather, anise, red flowers, and dried herbs. A hint of baking spice adds to the wine's impressive complexity. This rendering of Montepulciano offers a richness of the palate with impeccable balance and soft tannins. While ideal for near-term drinking, the wine should continue to provide pleasure for another four-to-five years.

Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2013

88 Our Score
(4/2016) The latest release of one of our all time favorite Italian red wine values! Offers a combination of old world rusticity and new world ripe red fruits that will please just about any red wine lover. Medium in weight with concentrated red berry flavors of strawberry, raspberry, smoke, dusty earth, leather and tobacco. An excellent choice for a house red to buy by the case load.

Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014

88 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(7/2016) "Good medium red. Subtly complex nose offers raspberry, blood orange, red plum, violet and herbs. Juicy and light on its feet; an edgy note of pepper and spices complicates red berry and earthy flavors. Sappy, savory red with dusty tannins and excellent lift -- a perfect picnic or barbecue wine."
