Rated 99 POINTS: Luca Maroni, Annual Italian Wine Guide 2020
Hi Folks, Since European Wine Store's creation 8 years ago, there hasn't been a single Red that gets the pulses racing quite like Amaranta di Ulisse Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Yes, you've all been very patient about when its coming back and thankfully you don't have to count down those sleeps anymore as we have it ready to rock! If you've not yet had the pleasure of feasting on the wonder's that this spellbinding Red conjures, than gee you've timed it well with the weather we have at the moment as this is the perfect accompaniment!
To get you salivating even more!, we've even engaged the thoughts of esteemed wine judge and wine writer Luca Maroni who beautifully captures and translates the taste sensations into a work of art!
''Few other red wines in the world show off this style in which the sweetness of the fruit, with those of the balsamic spices so sweetly, vanilla-mentally minty, are so penetrated and balanced. At the base of this shining persuasion, a raw material of supreme concentration, an oenological transformation that nothing has dispersed of its original natural splendour. Integrity that is cleanliness and stainless splendour of its fruit of the forest, of concentration and palatal balance that is truly exceptional. Chapeau.'' 99 Points, Best Italian Wine, Luca Maroni, Annual Italian Wine Guide 2020

Aged 9/12 months in the French and American barriques, Amaranta is ruby red with garnet reflections; opulent fruit, the bouquet is intense, fruity, persistent, with notes of dried flowers, spice, licorice, marasca cherries. The palate is stylish, velvety, almost creamy. Complex, elegant, well balanced with a long aftertaste. Montepulciano D’Abruzzo. Very limited.
