VinoUS Media Review
Like a basket of freshly picked berries mixed with wild herbs and violets, the 2018 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Malandrino lifts up, appealing and wickedly fresh. It's silky and pliant in feel, with depths of ripe red and blue fruits jazzed up by zesty acids and salty minerals. Purple-tinged florals linger, along with a pleasant inner sweetness over a layer of fine tannins. There is simply so much pleasure to be found here. A wine for medium-term cellaring. Well done. Drink 2021-2028. (Eric Guido)
The wine shows a deep ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, little transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean and pleasing aromas of black cherry, blueberry, plum, carob and violet followed by pleasing aromas of walnut-husk. In the mouth it has good correspondence to the nose, good balance, agreeable tannins, good body and intense flavors. The finish is persistent with flavors of black cherry and plum.
