Vestini Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2007 DOC

From the Abruzzo appellation comes this deeply colored, medium bodied red wine from Italy, made with 100% Montepulciano and aged in Slavonian oak.

Fresh aromas of cassis, plums and red currant lie beneath a layer of subtle fruit with earthy overtones of spices, specifically cinnamon, with a suggestion of herbs. Its pleasant but basic simplicity makes this a good everyday wine that will go well with pizza, pasta or even some chicken dishes.
