Binomio Montepulciano D’Abruzzo
2015, Abruzzo, ITL
Binomio Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Reserva ‘15 Abruzzo, ITL
From a region that, for the most part, is known for rustic, everyday reds – its certainly a treat to taste aristocratic, terroir driven examples that break said mold (w/ plenty of charm to spare). Binomio’s Montepulciano pays respect to the Montepulciano varietal’s tannic, grippy nature by aging the wine in French oak for 15-18 months, and holding it even further in bottle before releasing. The result is a symphonic medley of baked plums, cherry, oregano, tar, and baking spices (especially chocolate on the finish), coupled with a gritty, yet succulent palate. Great for the heavy, sweet spiced, red lover’s out there, who are looking for alternatives to Cab.
