2001 Valentini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Posted by Joe Salamone

Valentini's Montepulciano is one of Italy's great wines.

The 2001 is an awe-inspiring bottle and one of our personal favorites.

Valentini's Montepulciano is one of the most elusive wines in all of the Italy. He only makes it in special vintages and it has a cult following. Landing this small parcel of the 2001 is a big score.

The 2001 is an incredibly refined vintage of the wine. There's impressive harmony and beautiful proportions.

Valentini's magic with Montepulciano is how the wines have staining concentration and wild complexity, combined with poise, delineation and class. The 2001 flaunts just how sophisticated and pure this wine can be.

In any vintage, Valentini's Montepulciano covers a dizzying spectrum. There's dark fruits, smoke, baked herbs, pine resin, exotic spices and high-toned floral notes.

Valentini's Montepulciano has an incredible track record for aging. The 2001 promises to be an especially long-lived example. Very happy to offer.
