91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ramitello has enjoyed its own cult following over the years. The 2012 Molise Rosso Ramitello (a blend of Montepulciano and Aglianico) is a delicious expression with a balanced approach that puts just as much emphasis on intensity as it does elegance. The bouquet reveals dark fruit tones with spice and lingering leather at the back. The mouthfeel is reinforced by firm tannic structure and bright acidity.

Vinous praised the wines of Pasetti: "Owner Domenico Pasetti, helped by his wife Laura and children Massimo, Davide and Francesca, represents a modern success story in Abruzzo wine, as his judiciously oaked, easy-to-drink wines have been extremely popular, especially in Italy, over the past decade.

91 points James Suckling: "A rich and beautiful red with lots of berry fruit plus hints of chocolate and vanilla, yet there's a freshness and edge to this wine that keeps it lively and delicious. One of the best Italian wines for the money." (11/2016)

The location's favorable climate, varied terrain and clay chalk and skeleton-rich rocky subsoils result in some of the best wines coming out of Italy today. Made by husband and wife team Franco and Mimma from vineyards at 550 meters above sea level, their Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is aromatic, balanced and elegant. The perfect weeknight red.
The lush, forward red fruit of this Montepulciano is incredibly inviting and spicy. On the palate the supple texture of the wine is balanced perfectly by a core of bright acidity that stretches out the finish.
