2001 Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Sallis Castrum San Clemente - Italy, Abruzzi, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (7/1/2005)
This wine was poured at the WS Grand Tour in May. This wine was a real eye opener. Enoselsa and I tried 3 Montepulciano's in a row at the tasting and both felt this was the best of the lot. A blackish red color and clearly the most concentrated and bigest of the 3 wines. Notes of blackberry and minerals with a candylike sugar character. Full bodied with a long finish. 91+ points.
