The general impression of this wine was that it was a classic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, very smooth and easy drinking, but very flavorful, if a tad one dimensional.

Surprisingly smooth for a red wine. I enjoyed it with steak and another time with pasta.

Friends found this wine at Costco in Jacksonville. Other friends who lived in Italy (and who know more about wine than I do)really enjoyed this wine, echoing comments made elsewhere. Would love to buy a case of this. Price is also very good,

Ok, so the twig attatched to the bottle is a tad gimmiky but this fairly cheap bottle never fails to make folks happy. Really enjoyable deep red.

A terroir-driven wine that even comes with its own piece of grapevine on the bottle. Loaded with floral aromas, dates, and red berries, this medium-bodied red is great with pizza and red-sauce dishes.

A terroir-driven wine that even comes with its own piece of grape vine on the bottle. Enjoy floral aromas with dates and red berries in this medium-bodied red. Drink with your next pizza.
