Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2010 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vigneto di Popoli shows determined, pungent notes of cherry liqueur and red apple skin. That pungency could worsen with time and this wine is recommended for near-term consumption. It ages in oak for 12 months.  (Sep 2015)

Wine Spectator 88 points - Balanced and medium-bodied, this red offers tangy raspberry fruit, with savory notes of wild herb and olive tapenade underscored by sweet hints of mocha and gumdrop. Drink now through 2020. 6,700 cases made. -AN  (Apr 30 2015)

Wine maker notes
Because of its unique location, Valle Reale has redefined Montepulciano d’Abruzzo: Valle Reale’s vineyards are nestled into one of Italy’s most beautiful national parks. This rich wine is made from 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grown in the oldest estate vineyards on soils rich in chalk, clay and pebbles. Harvested by hand in November, the grapes are gently pressed and macerated with the skins for ten days to ensure ideal color concentration and structure.

Valle Reale was founded in 2000 with the goal of producing world-class wines. The Pizzolo family, in close consultation with Professor Leonardo Valenti and the agronomic faculty of the University of Milan, are working to develop a model for central Italian wines and winemaking. Working primarily with the Montepulciano varietal, they aim to create wines that highlight the grape”s intrinsic qualities: strength, exuberance, vitality, color, elegance, balance and depth. The process begins with the careful selection of clones that are best suited to Valle Reale”s soil and climate, and therefore best express the distinct characteristics of the varietal. Their success is evident in the young, vibrant DOC base wine, and even more so in the cru, a new benchmark for Montepulciano d”Abruzzo.
