90 • Romio 2011 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC $7.99. Best Buy.
Deep purple. High toned nose, spiced black cherries and creme brulee. A bit of toasted cherry pastry and chestnuts frame out the wine nicely. Balanced lively flavors and smoky mineral notes follow with ample fine tannins. A wonderful grilled steak and lamb wine and a great deal. (tasted on Mar-11-2013)
87 • Vigneto Edoardo 2008 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC $39.95.
Scents of earth, caramelized fruits and a hint of black olives and licorice. Briary berries with ample, nutty, dusty tannins and nice innate acidity. An earthy, traditional table wine that needs aeration prior to serving. (tasted on Mar-11-2013)
84 • Martin Ulisse 2008 Signature Collection, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC $13.99.|Find-a-Wine|
Deep purple-garnet opaque color. Dark roasted cherries with a charred oak note. Nice extracted flavors are rather smothered under a heavy blanket of tongue coating, firm oak tannins. Needs a charred beef dish. (tasted on Mar-11-2013)
