Description

Minimum Order 6x75cl

Grapes from the highest, oldest, part of the Valle Reale vineyards. A clay and limestone soil with 35 y.o. vines giving tiny yields, then 16 months barrique-ageing is followed by a further year in bottle. The 2004 growing season was close to perfect; warm, with no extremes gave slow ripening and exceptional fruit: Full, rich but refined; dark damson fruit, a touch of vanilla, coffee, cinnamon and clove spice, plus minerals on the finish.

The 2006 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto is loaded with character in its plums, tar, smoke and minerals. The San Calisto shows lovely richness and density all the way through to the round finish. This is a terrific effort from Valle Reale. 92pts - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, June '10
