Fontefico 2014 Titinge, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva

Deep, rich and dark in colour, this wine sees many “treatments” before it sees the bottle, and even then aging isn’t finished. Sourced from vines planted in the 1970s and the name plays with the dark colour this wine gets, “titinge” means ‘it does dye you’ (don’t spill it on anything white). Seeing 12 months of stainless steel, then 24 months in wood, followed by another 24 months in bottle before release: the nose screams black cherry, chocolate, mocha, white pepper and even has some balsamic notes; the palate is long on complexity: smoke, black cherry, pepper, cocoa, and licorice with a length of finish that goes on and on – the balancing acidity manages to keep it all in check.  Rating: ****
