92pointsIlluminati 2013 Pieluni Riserva (Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane)

An intense aroma of brandied cherries melds with wood spice, mushroom and incense on the nose. The full-bodied palate is all about power, showing ample grip to the flavors of thick-skinned dark cherry and black plum, with tobacco and spice lingering on the sides. Despite all that intensity, there's still lots of bright, vibrant acidity and structured yet fine-grained tannins to balance it all. Drink though 2025. Alexander Peartree
