Praesidium Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva has a spicy and exotic bouquet, blending Indian curries with grilled sage, tomato leaf, ash and hints of smoked meat. It’s surprisingly juicy and lifted in feel with bright acids propelling mineral-tinged red berries and hints of tart citrus across the palate. The tannins are crunchy, yet they don’t get in the way; the 2018 finishes with a bitter twang of cocoa and sour cherry. The rustic touch that Praesidium usually manages so well is a bit too noticeable in the 2018. Drinking window: 2023-2028. 88 points”
