Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto 2007

Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto 750ML 2007      
Sku: 13816

Winemaker's Notes
San Calisto is Valle Reale’s flagship wine. This muscular yet refined red is made from 100% Montepulciano grown in the San Calisto parcel, the oldest plot in the Valle Reale estate. This special vineyard is located in one of Italy's most beautiful national parks, surrounded by the majestic Gran Sasso mountain range. Here, the vines benefit from the high elevation, a wide diurnal temperature range, lots of cool, breezy ventilation and limestone rich soils.

Tasting Notes
Deep, ruby-red in color, San Calisto offers layered aromas of ripe blackberries and crushed black cherries, followed by spicy notes of cassis, leather and Mediterranean wildflowers. On the palate, its firm structure is elegantly softened by its silky, rich mouthfeel. San Calisto is excellent with sharp cheeses, barbecued ribs, lamb, filet mignon or steak au poivre.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The top of the line 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo San Calisto flows across the palate with layers of blue and black fruit. Mineral notes appear later, adding balance and proportion as the wine builds towards its explosive, elegant finish. The San Calisto spent 18 months in new French oak, all of which has been absorbed with no issues whatsoever. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. —Antonio Galloni
