Menicucci – Alzavola 2015 – Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

The nose is aromatic, gourmand, precise, well-built and elegant. It reveals notes of raspberries, fleshy strawberry and small notes of blackberries combined with touches of plum, flowers as well as slight hints of racy minerality and olive. The palate is fruity, juicy, elegant, precise, fine, clean, (very) slightly tight and offers tension, a beautiful definition, a beautiful finesse as well as a fine fleshiness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy raspberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of fleshy plum associated with small touches of blueberry, flowers as well as discreet hints of licorice (in the background). Tannins are fine and very slightly chewy. Good length. There is an imperceptible toasted hint on the persistence. A beautiful, a bit fleshy and fruit focused wine.
