Poggio Anima ‘Samael’ Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC 2017

Montepulciano from Italy - Other
Review Date : 29-Nov-2018
Full, near impenetrable, black-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim, very youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full and gently deep and well-packed with aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with boysenberries and black plums, unfolding some jam notes, and black mineral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and succulently sweet with ripe fruit flavours of blackberries, boysenberries and black plums, with enriching jam notes unfolding subtle herb, earth and mineral interest. The fruit sweetness is abundant and underlined by fine, grainy tannin structure lending supple grip and textures. The wine carries smoothly to a plush and juicy, bold-fruited finish. This is a succulently rich and ripe Montepulciano with plush, ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plum flavours with subtle mineral interest on a supple palate. Match with barbecued and grilled red meats over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 100% Montepulciano from Chieti, vines 24 y.o., fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending a week on skins post ferment and aged 6 months in seasoned French oak. 7,000 cases made. 18.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $22.00
