Lupi Reali, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, 2012

Lupi Reali Montepulciano 180414

 

Dad brought a few bottles of this Real Wolf to Sunday lunch and we offered it to the Ashmores, Bruce and Carol, on Good Friday.

A lovely Montepulciano, smooth, earthy without being gritty. Blueberries and Blackberries, a little Mint.

Well made – nice structure and finish.

Not sure if being organic adds to the flavour but we could howl at the Moon about this all night.

The wolves still roam this part of Abruzzo – which has the look of land that time has forgotten, high up between two National Parks which they like to call “the other Abruzzo” – the full story here:

A delicious find in Nectar Wines in Sandyford. About €17.
