Fattoria La Valentina

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! 🍷

Wine #200! Beautiful structure and blue fruits. Excellent, but as the price point would tell you, just a notch below the Dr. Crane. — 3 years ago

Château D'Arlay

Côtes du Jura Red Blend

So fresh and juicy with the right amount of earthiness and sweet spice. Not a ton of depth, but this is the definition of a classic food wine. Good wine for #200!!! This is the Trousseau, Poulsard, Pinot Noir blend — 5 years ago

Château d'Esclans

Whispering Angel Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2014
