Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in a bottle. Only six thousand bottles per year make the Kurni a pure temptation, an idea that became substance. This is its greatest quality, to elevate itself above matter and aim for the Absolute. Its appearance is imperturbable like ink, splendid, a whirlpool of red fruit in many forms—fresh, caramelized, in alcohol, in a frappé, in ice cream, in yogurt—but also rose, mulberry, carnation, licorice, iris, aniseed, coffee, cinnamon, tobacco, china root, rhubarb, ginger, myrtle. It’s a surprising fugue of flavors that finds no rest. The magnificence of its taste is amplified by a warm texture, while tannins are under control. [...]
It is no secret that central Italy produces some great reds and back in the day many wines in northern Italy and France were ‘cut’ with wines made from grapes native to central Italy, first among these Montepulciano. There are also a host of other grapes that have a bold structure as well. The following is a small sampling of wines that surprised us for their personality and expressiveness.

Retrospective on the Montepulciano of Le Marche and Abruzzo, which will give an idea of the vine’s potential.[...]
Marco Casolanetti and his wife Eleonora Rossi own a little agriturismo surrounded by their vineyards and olive groves in the heart of the Marche region. Old indigenous variety, respect for the terroir and modern techniques are the winning blend of their only wine: Kurni.
Produced from a 1.4 ha vineyard high up in Cupra Marittima, and made from Montepulciano grapes. This wine shows a wonderfully deep, liquoricey nose with a lifted herbal, slightly leafy edge. It has an amazingly rich, full palate with a fascinating texture and lots of bright full acidity. It’s hard to describe: almost liqueur like, with great concentration. An intense, juicy yet complex red wine that is very individual.
