Tenuta Ulisse ‘Amaranta’ Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOP 2013

Montepulciano from Italy - Other
Review Date : 07-Jul-2016
Very full black-hued purple-red colour, near impenetrable and youthful in appearance. The nose is full and firmly packed with densely concentrated aromas of very ripe blackberry black plum and boysenberry fruit along with liquorice and black cherry liqueur notes, revealing floral and jam elements and sweet oak. Medium-full bodied, rich and plush, sweet and juicy fruit flavours of blackberries, plums and blue fruits show with liquorice, jam and slight confectionary notes. The fruit is bold and up-front, but supported by fine-grained tannin structure and background acidity. A little alcohol drive is present, but the wine retains style and balance, and carries to a long, lingering finish of black fruits, liquorice, and nuances of herbs and minerals. This is a rich and plush Montepulciano with black fruits, fine tannin structure and some sweet, opulent detailing. Match with slow-cooked game met dishes over the next 5-7 years. Montepulciano fruit from Chieti, vines 30-35 y.o., fermented to 14.0% alc., aged 9-12 months in French and American oak. 18.5/20 Jul 2016 RRP $31.99
