Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Villa Gemma Rosso Riserva 2005
|Region||Italy, Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo|
Wine EnthusiastVilla Gemma is a flagship wine for Abruzzo that underlines a specific quality-minded winemaking philosophy that makes this Italian region so exciting and full of surprises. The wine is dark and superconcentrated, with amazing intensity and generous layers of mature berry fruit, spice, tobacco, used leather and polished river stone. It is smooth, firm, dense and will age many more years to come.
Wine SpectatorA rich, spicy red that's built around concentrated black plum and blackberry fruit. Hints of sanguine, wild flower and ash unfold on the long, driving finish. Drink now through 2017.
