Amorotti Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Italy 2019
A recently discovered gem, the wines from Amorotti are amongst the best in the region. A neighbor of the iconic Valentini, Amorotti is a project by Gaetano Carboni with 2019 as his second vintage coming to the U.S. Montepulciano is undaughtly a fuller bodied wine, but Gaetano has found a beautiful way to preserve some fruitiness without the over polishing the Montepulciano's rustic nature, adding an extra level of depth and structure.
