Vino-Eccellenza-Espresso-2007Few wines, in Abruzzo and all over the peninsula, express a personality as authentic as the red wines inspired by Enzo Pasquale’s red wines. Here, in the Peligna Valley, the Montepulciano grapes express their best, giving birth to powerful and lingering wines, that combine structural power with a great tanninic taste and a remarkable length of taste. Only 5 hectares of vineyard and about twenty thousand bottles produced a year. The Reserve 2007, waited for a long time, surely lives up to the expectations. It’s easy to predict a good evolution in the bottle. The quality of Cerasuolo is no less brilliant, it is a rosé with such a complexity that embarrasses red wines of higher fame (and price).
Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Riserva 2007 – 18,5/20: it has got an intense, clear and peculiar iridescent scent. Also a strong smoked side, mountain herbs, graphite, wild cherry smell.A great fullness in mouth, penetrating, ferrous metallic side that adds complexity and profundity.Fine, tasty and hearty tannins; very long ending.
Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Cerasuolo 2011 – 17,5/20: clear, “transparent” smell, great purity also to the taste, salty and at the same time fruity at the middle of the mouth, with a rhythmic, lively and crystalline ending.
