- Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media The 2017 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Tritano takes things to a darker, richer but also more savory place, showing brown spice, cherry sauce, hints of sage and earth tones. It's soft in texture ushering in fleshy red and blue fruits, contrasted by nervous acidity, with saline-minerals creating a sweet and sour effect, but also a more tactile feel. This closes long with just a hint of tannin and a slight buzz of perceivable heat. This is a solid glass of Montepulciano. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast This 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 Page Review
