Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Jorio 75cl
Vintage 2010, from Marche, Italy. Deep ruby red, recalls plums and red cherries on the nose, followed by balsamic and salty notes on a background of ripe liquorice. With clean tannins in the mouth, it comes across as full and vigorous, with a long and intense finish. Ideal with pasta with meat sauces, roast white and red meat, rabbit ragu and mixed grills.
