Rich smokey notes of tar, plum and vanilla make this wine instantly enticing – just what we want in a good Montepulciano. The plum notes follow through on the palate, with notes of blueberry, tea and a hint of cinnamon. Nice balance and structure here, with grippy tanins that soften as it opens. Nothing mind blowing here, but make no mistake this is a solid wine that delivers everything you want to see in a Montepulciano at this price point. The deep purple colour of this wine only helps to draw you in more.
We had this with a spicy bruschetta and burrata – tasty. You’ll be happy with this as your pizza and pasta wine, but it would also be great with a grilled steak served with a squeeze of fresh lemon, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil – it cries out for the flavours of Italy.
