Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Villa Gemma 1998

Masciarelli (Italy)

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (Abruzzo)
Red Wine Red Wine Score: ✧✧✧✧

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (Abruzzo) The wine shows a beautiful and deep ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, little transparency. The nose denotes great personality with intense, clean and elegant aromas. There can be perceived good aromas of carob, cherry, chocolate, black cherry jam, blackberry jam, raspberry, licorice, blueberry and vanilla. The mouth reveals a good correspondence to the nose and a slightly tannic attack promptly balanced by alcohol, present in good quantity. The finish is persistent with pleasing flavors of black cherry jam, plum jam and blueberry. A very well made wine. This Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is produced my macerating skins for 20-30 days and a fermentation in casks for 15-20 days followed by an aging in barrique for 18-24 months.

Alcohol: 14.5%
