2010 Colle Morino Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Ah, Italian wine --

light berry jam, thin prickly brininess, a little smoke ...

The first thing any wine writer tells you about Italian wines, that they are bursting with acidity and need to be drunk with a meal, remains the truest thing to be said about them. This Colle Morino is a montepulciano d'Abruzzo, that is, a wine made from the grape montepulciano, in the region of Abruzzo in east central Italy. Not to be confused, as wine writers further conscientiously say, with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a wine made from the sangiovese grape near the town of Montepulciano, in Tuscany. That's western Italy. There.  

Retail, about$10.
