Tara scored this wine: 85/100
If you drink wine like I do... at least a glass a night before or with dinner... then this wine is worth trying. I don't know about you, but paying even as little as $10 to $20 for a 750ml bottle of wine a couple times a week adds up. This wine, at $12.50 for a 1.5L bottle, is an excellent value for your money. Poo-poo me if you must but I find this to be a well-rounded easy drinking wine that is perfectly suited to being my go to wine for everyday enjoyment. Besides it allows me to scrimp those now non-existant pennies so that every now and then I can splurge on something that does cost a bit more.
This wine comes to us from Italy - the D'Abruzzo region - and is made from the Montepulciano grape variety. It's flavoured with black fruits a la blackberry and cherry, has very mild tannins and goes with a variety of foods. If you haven't already given this wine a try (or if you have given it a pass before because of it's price - maybe you thought that something that inexpensive couldn't possibly be good)- Think again and try it now.
