When natural wine is done right. Too bad the highs here are so high, because the lows everywhere just get lower in perspective. Rose which transcends the category, built on layers of interaction between reduction, volatility and finesse. — 2 days ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2014

At first I considered posting something really nice for my wine number 200 🍭🎈!
Then I rethought my focus...so I went to my local Hyvee wine department and picked up a bottle accompanied by card stating it had a good rating..better yet the bottle's vintage actually matched that on the card! 😱
Instead of this post being about my wine...I want this to be a special shout out...Kudos...and thank you to All Of You wonderful people who make up this community of people who are passionate about wine!
Thank you to all of you that have taken the time to answer my silly Questions...given advice...and have taught me so much by expanded my knowledge of what great wines are out there (we won't mention the expansion of 💸) 😏
I am grateful to ALL of you...to UPS and FedEx and to family living 15 minutes across the Mississippi in Illinois for wines that will not ship to Iowa!! 🙄

As for this wine that I am sampling tonight...it is very pleasantly balanced...cherry liqueur..earth..black licorice and leather!
Cheers to all! 🍷

It’s just a joy. Juicy and just the right amount of silky tannins to flesh out this medium-bodied stand-by.
