  • One of my favorite "daily" wines is a Montepulciano D'abruzzo.  Its only $6.99 a bottle and absolutely amazing for that price point.  Red fruit forward with a little earthiness to it... Cherry, strawberry and a little spice.  Amazing with a number of different items.  Available here at Vinovin Online Read More
