The Montepulciano grape is quite prolific; plump, with high amounts of deep purple- and ruby-colored juice, it makes nice wines even when grown in large quantities. This example shows lower acidity and mild, sweet tannins; it has a slightly floral nose with a touch of toasty oak. Abundant flavors of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are well balanced, with a hint of spice on the finish. Delightful to serve with lasanga or chicken cacciatore.

Deep ruby in color, this unoaked Montepulciano shows off its cherry, currant and plum fruit. The wine shows superb quality and finesse that is hard to beat at this this price.

Barbaandrsquo;s 2008 Montepulciano dandrsquo;Abruzzo Vasari is an attractive, mid-weight red with a vinous, fresh personality and good overall length. The 2008 is a touch compact, but that is a small criticism at this price point. Anticipated maturity: 2010andndash;2013.
