This is actually taken THROUGH a glass of it!!
Normally associated with California, this mega brand has recently branched out into International wines.
This new Montepulciano Abruzzo is fantastic, brilliant. I just keep going back for more yes yes yes. oh ..now its gone!
only cheap as well.
2007 Blossom Hill Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Montepulciano is the grape variety here.
Excellent fragrant sweet fruit, toast and a bit of spice on the nose.
Medium bodied on the palate with well balanced texture. smooth but the tannins have a nice bit of grip.
Aromatic fruit and delicious cigar like savoury hints.
Superb example of ripe, tasty and mature Italian wine.
