Press & Shelf Talkers
- Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine EnthusiastThis light- to medium-bodied Montepulciano boasts a cohesive nose of ripe dark cherry, plum juice, anise and tobacco leaf on the nose and palate. It's bright and tangy in feel, honed in by a gentle hug of raspy tannins. This is a great weekday red to be enjoyed alongside pasta marinara. Shelf Talker Full Review
- Score: 88 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate“Soft and luscious, the 2015 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Tritàno is a great wine to pair with easy pasta dishes with sweet tomato and salty Parmigiano cheese. This is a simple and genuine wine that delivers the power and the intensity of the Montepulciano grape. The variety is also yielding in terms of its tannic structure, and that’s what makes this red so food friendly and accessible.” Shelf Talker Full Review
- Score: 87 Vintage 2013 Wine Enthusiast“Aromas of ripe black-skinned berry and a whiff of cooking spice lift out of the glass. The solid straightforward palate offers black currant, dried cherry and clove framed in seasoned tannins.” Kerin O’Keefe Shelf Talker Full Review
