2007 Pasetti "Tenutarossa" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

SKU #1074041 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Rich and chewy, this comes with bold aromas of black fruit, plum, licorice, tobacco and leather. Itís slightly rustic in places, but its overall personality and feel is intriguing and pleasurable.  (10/ 2012)

K&L Notes

This red is a greatly structured wine with deep red ruby color with pomegranate at the edge. It has a bouquet of red ripe fruits, especially cherry and bitter cherry, with spicy notes. The taste is full and round with persistent flavors of marmalade, vanilla, coffee and licorice. Aged in 20-hectolitre bay oak barrels for more than 24 months. Excellent with roasted meat and game, grilled meat, seasoned cheese, and salami.

Pasetti's Tenutarossa is about as good as montepulciano gets, a work of art that's like drinking a new moon midnight sky. It is a sharp, big wine of deep, blackberry nothingness - I love it.

Saturated ruby in the glass. Earthy, mushroom & spicy, blackberry notes on the nose. Chewy tannins still persist with chunky red & black fruits with oak spice. Paired well with BBQ ... Really solid wine for the price!

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
