Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "Slightly held back or restrained on first nose, the Valentini 2012 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo opens slowly and contemplatively to sensations of dark fruit, smoke, tobacco and cured meat. Despite the rather heavy and sun-drenched nature of that first wave of aromas, it's impossible to miss the enormous intensity and textural richness packed tightly underneath. That full-bodied power is a celebrated signature of this wine and is a consistent feature of past editions. Give the glass a few robust swirls and a second act is soon to follow. Those heavier dark fruit aromas magically lift to reveal an enormous color palette of camphor ash, saffron and wild licorice root. (ML)" 94 points Vinous "Deep ruby. Initially reticent aromas open slowly with aeration and a hint at dark red cherry, blueberry, underbrush, plus a perfumed violet topnote. Bright, juicy and suave, with a seamless quality to the tannins that provide backbone to the ripe blue and black fruit and herbal flavors. Finishes long and very pure, with a charming, easy to drink quality, though this will repay cellaring. (ID)"
