“Montepulciano • Best Buy”

Perfect With A Wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano!

By David Gettenberg

The 2017 Contesa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a charming Italian red and a "Best Value." 

We've been fans of the Contesa winery for years, but this Montepulciano d' Abruzzo is particularly outstanding.

Contesa is perfect with a wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano and those hassle-free nights where you crave the simple pleasures such as pizza or pasta.  

It is even perfect with winter stews and roasted meats.

Silky smooth, it has fantastic aromas of plum, earth, and dried spice.  The palate, which is framed by long-lasting sweet, dusty tannins, has rustic texture and a refined body.   Dark berry, dried fig, dark plum, cocoa, and cherry flavors dance on the palate.  It's an exceptional wine at this price point.  

Not to be confused with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (a Sangiovese red from Tuscany), this Montepulciano (the grape) is from the region of Abruzzo, Italy.  

This is such a delicious and versatile Italian red.

Buy by the case(s).  

It's a pantry essential!

Enjoy!
