99

"Best red ever from this producer. In the mouth this wine has a dense red fruit character. The scent of rose petal and flowers, is a triumph of aromas,a true wonder of nature, with fragrance, roundness, thickness, with its soft but firm core. All aspects that characterize the quality of an excellent red, with dense tannins, and red berry fruit. Full body, dense but not over extracted, with a sensational nose of pure elegance, almost like a cologne. Hard work on the land pays off with such an incredible red wine, from one of the rarest grape in the world. Montalbera has achieve a benchmark with L'Accento, a wine made to age for a decade, a true classic Italian breed for the privileged many. The finish is long and coats the palate with flavors of dark small berries and balsam notes that last for minutes."

The winery has achieve great success with L'accento which shows pronounced notes of Roses, licorice, with a dense and compact structure and a full body personality with a long fruity finish." -Due Bicchieri, Gambero Rosso.
