2016 Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 'Tatone'
The 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is spicy and perfumed, leading off with bright cherry and strawberry notes, as hints of dusty rose and wild herbs join the mix. Its silky textures combine with juicy acids to create a round and pliant expression, as floral-laced red fruits and minerals slowly saturate. The finish is long and structured, with fine tannins drying and a note of tart wild berry lingering on and on. This is really quite pretty.
