Tenuta Querce Grosse – Escol 2012, Riserva – Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

The nose is aromatic, elegant, well-built, racy and offers a small power. It reveals notes of wild blackberries, crushed berries and small notes of crushed blueberry, crushed red berries combined with small touches of vanilla, Sichuan pepper, truffle / undergrowth as well as discreet hints of garrigue and spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, mineral, elegant, silky and offers a beautiful finesse, a beautiful grain, suavity, a beautiful definition, depthness and harmony. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, fleshy / juicy red berries and small touches of cassis, cherry, small wild berries associated with discreet hints of garrigue, black olive, undergrowth/truffle as well as a very discreet touch of chocolate and caramelization. Tannins are fine, tight and (very) slightly powdery. Good length and good persistence.
