91pointsIlluminati 2011 Pieluni Riserva (Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane)

A defined nose of sauced blackberry and red cherry melds with a mix of charred tobacco leaf and walnut. This is a bruiser on the palate, boasting an abundance of firm tannins yet plenty of acidity for balance. It's deep and penetrating in feel, ending on a dusting of powdered, dried herbs and tar. Drink from 2022. Alexander Peartree
