Lillà Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2007

Member Review by Slipstream:

Nostril-tingling aroma with some nice leafy notes. A mellow but still full-bodied red that walks the lines nicely. Neither sour nor sweet, mostly dry, with a bit of oak and tea, a little tannin. I liked it, and nice at the price.

I am drinking this right now to accompany some Indian style meals based on various spicy simmer sauces containing either chicken, fish, or shrimp plus firm tofu and some green or yellow squash and brown rice. The chilled wine is dry, fresh and pleasant, somewhat floral in bouquet, very drinkable, and an excellent value at $5.99 in Astor's in NYC. Its regular price of 7.99 is still a bargain.

Made from the Montepulciano grape, this hearty, everyday red wine is an easy crowd-pleaser with tasty aromas of oregano, black olives, blackberries, and fern. Solid varietal character comes from estate-owned vines located in the Colline Teramane zone of Abruzzo. Meat on the menu? Pair this wine with a lamb ragù served over pasta. If you're in the mood for a cheese plate, this goes hand in hand with Pecorino, the region’s famous sheep’s milk cheese.

A remarkable Trebbiano from Abruzzo, a coastal region nestled alongside the Adriatic Sea in central Italy. This bottling comes from middle-aged and old-vine plantings in the foothills of the Majella mountain range, one of the highest points of the Abruzzo appellation. Dry on the palate, the wine offers a harmonious balance of citrus fruits and minerals on the finish. As on the beaches of Abruzzo, this wine is best enjoyed with seafood: it goes hand in hand with fresh anchovies, octopus, and shellfish.
