Abruzzo and Molise Coming of Age

Once widely viewed as the source of nothing more than hearty red wines and inexpensive, inoffensive whites, Abruzzo and Molise are on the upswing. The wine scene in Abruzzo, long a sleeping giant of Italian wine, is especially exciting today. Molise’s climb to wine respectability is a recent event, so the region’s wines are still a work in progress, but there are enough encouraging signs to suggest the region has a bright future.

2014 Les Trouvés Red Wine ($25.00) 90

2014 Les Trouvés Red Wine, 90 points

This complex, savory Provençal-inspired blend of Syrah/Mourvèdre/Grenache from Washington offers an alluring perfume of blackberry, violet, wild sage and black olive. Its ripe but dry and juicy palate impression and fine-grained tannins should pair well with grilled meat and piquant chicken. (ST)
