La Valentina Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC ‘Spelt’ 2011 $44.50

This is a super-sexy Italian montepulciano grown in La Valentina’s coastal vineyard in Spoltore in the province of Pescara.  It’s dense and saturated with dark fruit, cocoa, black guava and dusty, leathery flavours, chewy, yet supple stretchy tannins and a fresh, juiciness on the finish.  It’s an exciting, seductive wine.

Drink with: Italian meatloaf in sweet tomato sauce…
