From the first glass to the last glass this little Monty oozes class. Ripe and flavoursome with softly structured, powdery tannins and only 12.5% Alc/Vol. It retains elegance and balance while impressing with its youthfullness and complexity. It never ceases to amaze me how good all the Gran Sasso wines are because they are so very inexpensive. The aromas of violets, dried herbs and sweet earth jump out of the glass and then follow onto the palate. There is length and complexity here too with savoury tannins and a nice lean drive through the palate. Serve at 12-15 degrees C. Screwcap. Drink Now.

Details

Importer's Note: The Gran Sasso vineyards are situated among the hills in the provinces of Chieti and Teramo in the region of Abruzzo while the beautiful modern winery is located in the town of Ortona. Abruzzo is located in the central eastern part of Italy on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The unique position of the vineyards allows them to benefit from the sea and mountain breezes, producing wines that are full in body and truly represent the characteristics of the region.
Valentino Sciotti is involved with a number of wineries in Puglia, Campania (he is the man behind Vesevo) and his native Abruzzi. The Gran Sasso wines are made by young winemaker Marco Flacco and display a freshness and directness of fruit that is seldom found in this region. Most Montepulciano at this price comes either from negociants buying bulk wines or from co-ops, neither of whom work as well or as closely with their growers as Valentino and his team. The grapes for this wine are grown in 15-20 year old vineyards in the production zones of Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri. This wine is deep ruby red in colour with garnet reflections. It is clean, fresh and plummy on the nose, rich, supple and accessible on the palate. It is balanced and full-bodied with good tannins. The fresh, primary fruit characters are maximised by the fact that it does not age in oak, making it approachable and ready to drink.
