Tiberio Montepulciano D' Abruzzo 2015

Availability: In stock (10)

The story of Azienda Agricola Tiberio begins in the year 2000 on the ancient lands beneath the Majella and Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo. Riccardo Tiberio discovered vines roughly 40 years old so impressive that he decided to change his and his family’s destiny and begin making wine. The Tiberio Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2015, now from 55 year old vines that grow in clay-calcareous soils, is lifted, mineral and aromatic. Riccardos daughter Cristiana took over the winery in 2011. Cristiana is a chemistry graduate that teaches college level winemaking and sommelier classes and has studied with some of the worlds best vitners, including Jacques Selosse in Champagne, Nicolas Joly in the Loire and Egon Muller in Germany. Christiana believes “that you can only truly make a wine with the greatest expression of the place if you have lived there and really understand the climate and sense of the place.”

“Super-ripe aromas of red cherry, raspberry jelly, quinine and sweet spices with flinty notes emerging slowly with aeration.  Bright and intense, with spicy red plum and cherry-pie flavors nicely framed by lively acidity; 2015 was a warm year, but this wine stays fresh and dances nimbly on the palate.  Finishes long with a fleshy mouthfeel, youthful chewy tannins and insidious sweetness (14% alcohol).  This lovely entry-level Montepulciano offers a lot of wine for the money.”
