Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Rich, structured and elegant, this ’97 offers tremendous harmony among its elements, balancing its juicy, succulent fruit with brooding notes, its acidity with sweetness, and its velvety tannins with all the rest. This "wild" wine is difficult to describe, bringing together attributes of a great Hermitage and a Taurasi, but it remains uniquely Valentini. While delivering a concentrated expression upon release, Valentini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo requires several years to develop its full profile of black licorice, smoke, ash, leather, and game; a significant period of aeration is requisite to approach the wine meaningfully prior to that time. Remarkably vibrant and fresh even at more than two decades old, a vintage Valentini d’Abruzzo offers a patina of smokiness, notes of tar and black olives, and remarkable mellowness and integration to its components.
