La Valentina
92
"The estateÄôs top shelf wine is the 2009 Montepulciano dÄôAbruzzo Terre dei Vestini Riserva Bellovedere. I found this expression to be very distinct and distinguished. In fact, the elegance here truly is outstanding and the hearty Montepulciano grape struts its stuff in 2009. Sharp blackberry, toasted almond and spice call for attention and the wine exhibits sheer power and fruity blackness on the palate. It ferments for 30 days in conical tanks made from Slavonian oak and is aged 18 months in both barrique and larger barrel. -ML"
