2008 Monte Maria Montepulciano d'Abruzzo


Gamy -- typical Italian tartness, but a lot of fruit -- very good. "Bottled by C.G. SRL -- 65014 Loreto A. - I." Another wholly owned subsidiary of SPECTRE, no doubt -- must investigate Italian fine-print-on-the-wine-label laws.

Must also refresh memory re: map of Italy re: wine. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (the grape from the region) not the same as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (the wine from the region, inside Tuscany), nor Rosso di Montepulciano (ditto).

Monte Maria montepulcian d'Abruzzo -- look for the swoopy M on the label.

Retail, about $10.
