Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "The estate's 2006 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is gorgeous. Sweet floral notes lead to a burst of dark red fruit as this energetic Montepulciano shows off its class. Smoke, ash, tar, licorice and a host of other aromas and flavors develop in the glass, adding further layers of depth and complexity. (AG)" 93 points Vinous "Fully saturated ruby. Complex nose offers dark cherry, plum sauce, eucalyptus, tobacco and camphor. Dense, rich and powerful, but conveys an impression of energy to its ripe dark fruit, balsamic and vanilla flavors. Sneaky concentration here. Features a very soft, creamy yet sharply delineated mouthfeel perked up by harmonious, lively acidity. Vibrant red cherry and menthol flavors dominate on the long, very smooth finish. (ID)"

Azienda Agricola Valentini remains one of Montepulciano's most elusive producers

About Azienda Agricola Valentini

Azienda Agricola Valentini, a top producer in Abruzzo, is known for its elusive and highly coveted wines. With a reputation as a winemaking enigma, Valentini keeps its secrets close, limiting distribution and media access. Thankfully, SommPicks has exclusive access to Valentini's top-notch Montepulciano, Trebbiano, and rose, offering a chance to taste their hard to find wines.

Their Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is a cult favorite, with its intense, complex, and aging-worthy profile, while the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is famous for its rich flavors of red and black fruit, tobacco, and minerals. Valentini's rare rose is a testament to the coastal influence, with its signature salinity and pithy fruit adding rich texture.

Despite owning 170 acres of land, Valentini is highly selective, only using the best grapes from the best vintages, about 5% of the total. Fans of fine Italian wines should not miss the opportunity to taste Valentini's wines.
