Wine Description
Because of its unique location, Valle Reale has redefined Montepulciano d’Abruzzo: at 1,100+ feet above sea level, Valle Reale’s vineyards are nestled into one of Italy’s most beautiful national parks. This rich wine is made from 100% Montepulciano grown in the oldest estate vineyards on soils rich in chalk, clay, and pebbles. Harvested by hand in November, the grapes are gently pressed and macerated with the skins for ten days to ensure ideal color concentration and structure.

Tasting Notes
Ruby-red in color, the nose offers opulent aromas of dark berry fruit, spices, mint, and plums. On the palate, silky tannins and good acidity make for a rich and structured Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Food Pairing
Pair this wine with roasted poultry, Bolognese sauces, lamb tagines, and smoked ribs.


Ratings & Reviews
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Super-ripe red cherries, mint, flowers, licorice and French oak are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2009 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vigneto di Popoli. Flashy and exuberant but well balanced, the 2009 is all about layers of fruit and succulence. The 2009 is a bit forward, but it will provide considerable pleasure if opened over the next few years. It, too, is another fabulous value. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2013)
