2016 Ausonia Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Apollo [V91+]
Producer: Azienda Agricola Ausonia
Region: Atri (Teramo), Abruzzo, Italy
Vinous, 91+ Points
"Inky ruby. Dense aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, smoke, tobacco and violet. Rich and tactile, offering rising, youthfully chewy but polished tannins. This big, strapping wine boasts considerable refinement and grace despite its outwardly huge size (it has only 13.5% alcohol, and so it’s more balanced than many other Montepulciano d’Abruzzos clocking in at well over 14% alcohol in many vintages). Will likely improve with a little bottle age."
Spontaneous fermentation, unfined and unfiltered with low sulphites.
Organic and biodynamically grown. Vegan-friendly.
