"The 2009 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vigne Nuove is a fresh, unoaked red with beautifully plump, juicy red fruit that layers nicely into a delicate, feminine finish. Floral notes add lift and freshness. This is a steal for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Produced from the youngest estate vineyards, planted on hillsides at a density of 2,530 plants per acre on clay and limestone soils. Made from 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes, harvested by hand in October. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes
Brilliant garnet in color with intense purple tones. This young red offers explosive aromas of blueberries and sweet cherries, with notes of licorice and spices. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and plush, with loads of fresh red fruits. Easy going and ready to be enjoyed, this is a versatile, authentic Italian red: delicious by the glass and perfect with hearty food such as eggplant parmigiana, meat-based pasta, sausages, meatballs and salami.
