Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2013 Spiano, Illuminati
Every year, the President of Italy appoints 25 Cavalieri del Lavoro, who are entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves in various economic sectors. Dino Illuminati received this title in June 2005, for the skillfulness and innovations he showed in the sector of agriculture and highlighting the importance of the Abruzzo region. Of course the Illuminati family has been handing down the skilled art of wine-making for over 120 years and four generations making very rare reserve wines as well as superb value, every day wines like Spiano. Grapes are sourced from their carefully trellised vines in hillside vineyards near the Adriatic. The cooling effects of the sea allow them to ripen slowly until they are hand harvested in early October. After careful selection the grapes are stemmed, crushed and vinified using a long maceration in stainless steel. After, the wine ages in Slavonian oak barrels for 6 months. Italian Wine Critic Luca Maroni scored this 90 points and said "A rare offering for its vivid purple color, softness, roundness and gratification. Its first quality is its appearance: dark and dense ruby, so thick that the light cannot shine through if not just enough to offer vivid purple highlights. The second quality is its velvety touch both on the nose and on the palate: both senses harmoniously balanced. Its appeal and the richness of its fruit are amplified by its freshness. An extremely pleasing wine resulting from grape growing and winemaking of great caliber."
