Montupoli 2012 Monteplciano d' Abruzzo

Montupoli 2012 Monteplciano d' Abruzzo, $9.99, 89 points, poured opaque at the core and trended a crushed blackberry purple/red toward the clear rim at the glass wall.
Profuse fruit on the nose was fair.
The smooth fruity medium body carried fair acidity and mellow tannin with flavors of blueberry, blackberry, red raspberry, and loads of chocolate notes.
Finished very long on the trailing palate, a touch of spice, and a hint of warmth from the 13% alcohol, but the chocolate notes almost never ended.
I bought this wine at the Main Street Liquor Mart in Medford, Ma., and enjoyed this wine with pizza, buffalo chicken, and by itself.

  1. Interesting Dennis..... Montepulciano can make very good wines. They are vastly underrated and things like Spelt, Cerulli, Villa Medoro and of course Emidio Pepe are special treats that should not be overlooked. They are workhorse reds and are plummy, smokey and affordable. The 2009 Spelt is amazing and we've been going through several bottles.

    1. John: QPR is very good! Thx for your comments!
