Fragrant, fresh, pleasing.
Consistently reliable and food-friendly and a pleasure to review, this Montepulciano treads that delightful line between elegant and rustic. The 2019 shows sweet red cherry and a hint of raspberry, star anise, dried rose petals, pipe tobacco and leather. It has a Medium+ body and lovely freshness; cherry and fine spice flavours dominate the palate. It's an pleasing sipper, but will pair so well with dinners of roasted meats, game, hard cheeses, or veggie burgers, pizza or grilled mushrooms and eggplant.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
