Piandimare Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
Abruzzo is an overwhelmingly mountainous region in central Italy on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The primary red grape is montepulciano (not to be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which is made from sangiovese). Why do they make it so complicated!!!
Anyways, the variety known as montepulciano is distinct for its inky colour, rich palate, evident tannins, subtle acid and age-worthiness. Dark cherry and floral notes are dominant on the nose and there is great intensity to the mouthfeel. Essentially, if you like big Shiraz, you’re gonna love this. And we don’t mind the slew of gold medals this one has earned either. So skip the confusing part about understanding Italian wine regions and just enjoy a glass.
Full price $30.00 from the producer.

Abruzzo is a central Eastern Italian region most famous in vino circles for Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC. But don't box it in as an entry level export: it also includes the relatively recently designated (2003) subregion of Colline Teramane DOCG, which must include a minimum of 90% Montepulciano.
