Lightly Tannic and Tasty- Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2007 Capestrano Red Wine

Lightly Tannic and Tasty- Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2007 Capestrano Red Wine

Good fruit with soft tannins, this Italian blend is a welcome change to a Pinot Noir.  If you’re craving a Malbec, but don’t want a Malbec, this is going to be too tannic and earthy for you. Just opt for a pinot.

As I type (at 10:18pm) my tongue is still salivating after each sip, but in a good way.  The kick pairs well with the sugar in my chocolate cake :)

I picked up this bottle at Cova, a great wine bar off Washington, on my way home from benjy’s on a whim.  I thought the selection would be out of my price range, so I was oh-so-pleased when they suggested an “amazing red” for $14.99.  I found it for you here for $8.99.  You’re welcome!
