Atomos, Abruzzo (Italy) Red Wine 2018

We are pleased to reissue Rich Cook‘s entire review of our Atomos Red wine, published on the Wine Review Online site from California (USA)

Once in a while a mystery bottle crosses my desk — one that comes with little or no provenance, technical data or hints beyond what appears on the bottle itself, leaving me to render an opinion lacking the context that I usually like to include in a review.  So, away we go with just the following info from the bottle:  Red Wine, Product of Italy, 2018 vintage, 14.5% alcohol.  On the cork, the words “100% Manual Destemming” appear. My tasting note:  a boldly styled red, showing dark cherry fruit, pepper, faint dried herbs and potent brown spices in both aroma and flavor long spicy finish. With supple, age-worthy structure, it comes off as impressive as its packaging, which includes a stylized bag around a shapely 1 liter bottle.  A little research online reveals the source region as Abruzzo, and a retail price north of $300.  It’s an impressive gift of a very nice wine if you roll in the luxury marketplace.
