Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto 2009

Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1789697*

San Calisto is Valle Reale’s flagship wine. This muscular, yet refined, red is made from 100% Montepulciano grown in the San Calisto parcel, the oldest plot in the Valle Reale estate. This special vineyard is located in one of Italy’s most beautiful national parks, surrounded by the majestic Gran Sasso mountain range. Here, the vines benefit from the high elevation, a wide diurnal temperature range, lots of cool breezes, and limestone-rich soils.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Feb 2013)
The cask-aged 2009 Montepulciano d?Abruzzo San Calisto is the biggest and most structured of these wines. Earthiness, scorched earth, tobacco and red cherries fill out the wine?s big, broad-shouldered frame nicely. The San Calisto comes across as intense after the Vigneto di Popoli, but it makes up for that with its considerable complexity. Hints of tobacco, scorched earth and licorice linger on the dark, brooding finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with barbecued ribs, fresh berry coulis, mint-roasted lamb shank, or steak au poivre.
