Torre Zambra Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Madia 2021
$ 37.00 incl. GST
From plantings around the estate. Wild fermented in stainless steel, then aged 12 months in concrete tanks before bottling.
Bright and grippy, enough juiciness for casual drinking and enough depth to take seriously. The Montepulciano grape curiously can provide impressions of oak characters in its chocolate and spice notes – whatever the case, fun drinking here.
“Cherry jam, floral notes, liquorice, mint, and almond biscotti. It’s medium-bodied, fleshy and packed with cherry and spicy flavour, a little new leather, rich silty tannin, a bright pop of acidity, a ferrous character, and a choc-coffee tinged finish of good length. Lively wine, and kind of rustic, chewy, and juicy, but in a positive sense. Excellent.” 93 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
