"Among the best Montepulciano D’Abruzzo ever, a champion of analytical and sensory quality simply unattainable and dazzling."
This is Luca Maroni's Italian Red Wine of the Year 2016. Luca Maroni is one of Italy's most renowned wine critics – Italy's James Halliday or Jeremy Oliver if you like – and for this edition, over 11,000 wines were tasted. His number 1 red wine was Amaranta Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014 and we have it for $29.99. You're never likely to see a wine like this again, not rated so highly and priced at less than $30. If this was James Halliday's Red Wine of The Year, I guarantee it would be more than $30. We have limited stocks, so buy while you can, you won't be disappointed.
And if you'd like some encouragement to buy, then please read Luca's review below. It got me hook, line and sinker!
"The depth of its impenetrable purple-bluish are visually staggering...The extract is maximally concentrated, and its majestic, dense, tannic apex is balanced by the softness, the vivid gustatory acidity and the pulpy native grape, able to compose a flavour of perfect roundness and souplesse. The aroma and taste integrity is absolutely shining, as well as the gloriously juicy and archetypically considerable raw material. Certainly, among the best Montepulciano D’Abruzzo ever, a champion of analytical and sensory quality simply unattainable and dazzling".
