A value-driven Montepulciano.

Cherries lead on the fruity nose. Leaner, restrained and food friendly on the palate. Soft tannins, great acidic zip for pasta lovers, and a light finish.

Very drinkable. Dry yet a little fruity. Great with a steak

Classic Montepulciano D'Abbruzzo with bitter cherry, smoke, hinting at ripe (still low alc.), zesty acidity, and a baby bit of earth. Lowered rating for a little wet dog hair funk/skunkiness that came out on nose after open for a couple of hours.
