“Montepulciano • A Pantry Essential & Best Buy!”

Your Everyday House Pour & Pantry Essential!

By David Gettenberg

The 2020  Contesa Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a pantry essential.  This charming Italian red is one of the great values of Italy.

When the age-old question of "What's for dinner?" comes up, you will be more than prepared with the wine option. 

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

"This spicy red displays aromas of Sichuan peppercorn, blood orange peel and mentholated tobacco on the nose, with a solid core of black cherry and red plum. It's polished and supple on the palate, with smooth tannins and pulsing acidity working in tandem to lend a firm webbing for the plump cherry and plum flavors to shine. Accents of orange peel and purple flowers lend levity, with a savory twang of granite on the close." Wine Enthusiast

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. You will not be disappointed when you pop the cork! 

Buy by the case(s).  

It's a pantry essential!
