La Valentina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Terre dei Vestini Riserva 2013
Score 93 pt
A rich and generous red with so much fruit, spice and dried tea undertones. Full body, layered and
flavorful. Needs time to soften. A beauty now but better in 2019.

Binomio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva 2014
Score 93 pt
A rich and beautiful red with crushed berries and flowers that follow through to a medium to full
body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Needs to come more together. Best in 2020.

La Valentina Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Spelt 2017
Score 93 pt
This is a delicious, light red with dried-strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors. Medium body,
round and polished tannins and a fresh finish. Some pumice. Flavorful finish. From organically
grown grapes. Drink now

La Valentina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2016
Score 93 pt
Pretty depth of dark fruit in this with hints of flowers and fruit tea that follow through to a medium
to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.
