Jorio Umani Ronchi Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2011
good deep ruby hue. fresh cut red plums, blueberry and lilac. silken dark attack. beautiful chewy fruit that stains the palate leaving a sweet, fruity ghost on the lips.8 months in new and old oak adds to the spectre like nature of the wine. it is earthy and weighty in the mouth but throws up pretty little hints of flavours and aromas. LOve this wine. +741432 $
