I didn't have the energy to create a new wine or wonder if I picked the right one. This bottling comes in both Oro (gold letters for Jame) and Argento (silver letters). I'm writing about the silver. The gold gets aged in 100% new oak and the silver sees nothing but stainless steel. They taste completely different so adjust your sights accordingly.
The Argento is meant to be fresh, unmanipulated montepulciano, hence the steel. It's dark colored and expressive on the nose with red black fruits and a persistent coffee aroma. The coffee or whatever it is insinuates itself throughout the flavor profile, elbowing out other elements like a hockey player on the boards. I found it too intrusive and not particularly montepulciano-like, but maybe that's how it rolls here. Hard to warm up to. Might need the right kind of food. I wonder if a buttered scone or biscotti would work?
