Oriel Palio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo D.O.C. 2006 750ml

Oriel Palio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo D.O.C.

Aroma: Ripe black cherry, almond and fresh herbs. Taste: Rich cherry with hints of nutmeg and mint, and sweet, delicate tannins. Palio is named for an annual race in the teramo province of Abruzzo where teams compete for a prize by rolling barrels through the streets.

Hand-picked in small baskets from hillside vineyards that face the Adriatic. Cooling sea breezes temper the hot days and allow for full ripeness and balance. Clay and limestone soils. Temperature-controlled fermentation and aging in oak casks.

Not to be confused with Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, a Sangiovese-based wine from Tuscany, Montepulciano is a prolific grape planted widely throughout central Italy, particularly in the Abruzzi and the Marches. The best wines come from vineyards planted along the Adriatic, especially the Abruzzi regions of Teramo and Pescara. From better sites and with controlled yields, Montepulciano has gained recognition as much more than just a great value.

Smooth clean taste but slightly dry. Great everyday wine and a bargin price. Watch the bottom of the bottle for debris

The Oriel Montepulciano is perhaps on the dry side, which I prefer, and ready to enjoy, it is as good as many I have purchased at twice the price.
