Dry, concentrated, lush....not as old world style but I like this expression better than most Italian montipulcianos

Drinking the 2013 in 2017. Deep rich color. Dark thick legs. Light bouquet with hints of dark fruit. Surprising light flavor, light sweet notes with very low tannins. Smooth finish. Nice summer wine.

Not much complexity to it - no fruit and bitter

$50-$40
