Rosso Conero Villa Malacari, 100% Montepulciano, full, dried fruits, cedar and spice, lovely texture, delicious wine. The nose is equally rich and enticing with red and black cherry and berry fruits and hints of warming spice. The palate is balanced and intense with a layer of rustic earthiness under the sumptuous fruit. I fell in love with the Malacari wines after an amazing tasting in the courtyard overlooked by the 15th century villa with the sun setting and the wines dancing on the tongue. Often voted the most traditional producer in the region, the wines never fail to deliver on flavour and character. Perfect hearty red for winter nights, rich stews and roasts.
