Talamonti 'MODA' Montepulciano
"Talamonti is one of my favorite producers in Abruzzo in terms of value and price. The style of winemaking is very consistent and readily offers great bang for your buck." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Fruity and easy-drinking, this medium-bodied Montepulciano is the ultimate under-$10 pizza wine. Its bright acidity and juicy flavors of cherry and plum will complement any tomato sauce, but its silky vanilla and cherry cola tones and hints of oak (6 months Slovenian) make it great on its own too. On the scale of "drinker" to "thinker," this is definitely a "drinker" - there's a reason why this is so popular at weddings!
