|James Belardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
My first impressions of the Jasci & Marchesani Nerubè Riserva Montepulciano D'abruzzo were "‘whoa’ is that chocolate?" Then flavors of berries hit my palate and I was pleasantly surprised. I did not expect this level of sophistication from a wine at this price point - period. This wine has made it close to the top of my go-to list.
I'd say that the best pairing for this lovely wine would be foods that are spicy and slightly bitter such as pasta dishes like Cavatelli with Rapini and Spicy Sausage or a good Putanesca with olives and chilies. It would also make a nice compliment to stuffed peppers or cabbage rolls.
