Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Terre Dei Vestini - 2016s
The vegan produced San Zopito Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Terre Dei Vestini Doc by Torre Raone comes with a dense ruby red in the glass. At the edges, this Italian red also shows a transition into garnet red. If you give it some air by swirling it in the glass, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which is reflected in the strong church windows on the edge of the glass. The first nose of the San Zopito Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Terre Dei Vestini Doc shows notes of blackberries, black currants and mulberries. The fruity parts of the bouquet are joined by notes of the barrel aging and even more fruity-balsamic nuances.
This wine inspires with its elegant dry taste. It was bottled with just 0.2 grams of residual sugar. This is a real quality wine that clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this Italian is of course enchanting despite its dryness with the finest balance. Aroma does not necessarily need a lot of residual sugar. On the tongue, this powerful red wine is characterized by an incredibly velvety texture. Due to the moderate fruit acidity, the San Zopito Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Terre Dei Vestini Doc flatters with a velvety mouthfeel, without missing out on freshness at the same time. In the finish, this matured wine from the Abruzzo wine-growing region delights with its beautiful length. Once again there are hints of mulberry and blackberry.
