La Valentina 2005 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Deep purple/ruby color. Berry/cherry smell. Black cherry flavor, some blueberry, some licorice. Adequate acid to balance the fruit, rich texture, some alcohol warmth in the finish and some cleansing bitterness. Restrained tannins.

The next day the smell of fruit is more apparent, as is the berry flavor.

I’d buy this again for $13.29.
