Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Villa Gemma Riserva 2017
100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Exudes oak spices, melted licorice and smoke, which waft through finely knit flavors of baked blueberry and crème de cassis, with hints of iron, dried thyme, sandalwood and espresso. Rich and saturated in flavor, this is framed by supple tannins and lively acidity for balance. For fans of a more modern style today, but this should develop and integrate nicely with cellaring. Drink now through 2030.
