2011 Valle Reale Vigneto di Popoli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

Elegant and Perfectly Mature for a Song

Valle Reale   


This is really simple. Valle Reale is located inside one of the most beautiful national parks in Italy. They are in the mountains of Abruzzo and have rocky soils and great swings between day and night temperatures. They make single vineyard wines to perfectly express terroir. Everything is organic and natural.

Valle Reale is always the first stop of my visits to Italy. Back when I tasted the 2011 Valle Reale Vigneto di Popoli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo out of barrel I was very impressed. I asked the owner Leo Pizzolo if maybe he could hold some cases for us so we could show it to you when it had some age. He did exactly that and just shipped them to us at the original release price.

So you are getting a great wine that has been aged perfectly and everyone can afford it. This is a first come, first served situation. Enjoy.

2011 Valle Reale Vigneto di Popoli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo: Deep ruby. Aromas and flavors of dark berries, balsam, herbs and spices. Complex, balanced and perfectly mature. Ridiculous for this price. Excellent 19.99/bottle


Special case: 12 bottles of the above

for a special price of $204
