91 point Rosso at 25% off

Last updated 4 years ago

"Rosso from where?" you might be asking.  This one's from the famed appellation of Montepulciano in Tuscany, Italy.  Always Sangiovese-based, Rosso di Montepulciano is the affordable 2nd wine from a producer of Vino Nobile.  It's nice for the producers because Rosso di Montepulciano can be released earlier than Vino Nobile, helping them to pay the bills while the top wines age.  It's nice for consumers because of the possibility of getting an affordable, easygoing wine that still shows the flavor profile of these high-quality vineyards.
 
This one looks quite appealing based on the review, and the price is certainly right.  The discount is on any quantity, but our supply is limited, so it might be wise to buy multiples or by the case while you can.
 
Here's the Wine Spectator review:
 
"Black cherry, currant, cedar and wild herb flavors pick up a touch of licorice as this red unfolds on the palate. Bright and firm, with fine harmony and a long finish. Drink now through 2018."
