Marina Cvetić Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2017 (94 WA)

“The Marina Cvetić 2017 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva S. Martino Rosso is a full and generous wine that nails both the traits of the hot vintage and this super soft and velvety grape variety squarely on the head. You get a lot of pretty intensity here with black cherry fruit, blackberry, sweet spice and tobacco. The wine is richly textured and full-bodied, or perfect with an epic T-bone steak on the grill with a side of fried potatoes to soak up the meat juice on your plate.”

    Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

    The Montepulciano Marina Cvetic represents an intense and remarkable expression of one of the historical vines of Abruzzo.  The 100% Montepulciano comes from eight of the estate’s top parcels, across an altitude of 500 to 1,200 feet above sea level, on soils of calcareous clay and lime.  In these vineyards, we find not only the traditional Abruzzo pergola vine training, but also Simple Guyot and Spur Cordon as well.
