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.

Bright blackberries and blueberries are at the forefront on the nose. Medium-bodied with a persistent line of confident acidity and plenty of playful citrus and chestnut undertones.

The 2017 Montepulciano D’Abruzzo is a smoking value. Complex notes of dried cherries, peppery herbs, cedarwood, and a touch of loamy earth all emerge from the glass, and it’s medium-bodied, with a wonderful sweetness of fruit, light tannins, and great balance. I don’t expect it to make old bones, but it’s a terrific drink today. Enjoy bottles over the coming couple of years.
