Natalie's Score: 90/100

Rich, dark and savoury with black cherries and smoke. Full-bodied and luxuriously thick like a comforting blanket you wrap closer to you on a chilly night. Great structure and balance. An elegant dinner party wine that won’t cost a fortune. Plus the label looks like you imported it.

Great w Steak
Nina rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Rich dark ruby color with purple notes. On the nose a lot of red fruit, smoky, coffee and oak. On the palate the wine is very meaty, rich, lots of oak, good tannins and balanced acidity. Very juicy with long finish. Will be wonderful with any type of pasta or meat.
This wine won a Silver Medal at the 2010 International Wine and Spirits Competition. The next course was Osso Bucco, cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth served with polenta. For this course, guests were treated to two different wines. The first, a purple Talamonti Tre Saggi Montepulciano d’Abruzzo v. 2008 was a rich Montepulciano blend. The addition of [a portion of] Merlot provided weight and some complex notes of berry, cherry, blueberry, coffee, vanilla and elegant oak. It was a seamless pairing.
