| 92 pts, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A more sophisticated side of Montepulciano emerges from the 2008 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Spelt. Sweet floral notes lead to dark red berries and spices in this polished, gracious Montepulciano. La Valentina did a great job with the 2008, a wine that shows the pure elegance and refinement that Montepulciano is capable of. Sweet floral notes add lift on the finish. A pretty, beautifully balanced, silky wine loaded with class, the Spelt should drink well for the better part of the decade. Best of all, the Spelt is a fabulous value. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
La Valentina is a great source for flavorful reds that emphasize the richness Montepulciano is capable of. The whites are newer to me, but they are equally delicious, and great values too." (AG, Feb-2012)
