2007 Montepulciano D’Abruzzo

2007 Valle Reale Montepulciano D'Abruzzo

We had this 2007 Montepulciano with dinner over the weekend. It was excellent. The only word that comes to mind is smooth. We don’t care for wines that are too dry or that have an acidic bite at the end. This Italian red was fruity, full-bodied and easy to drink. At about $18.00 a bottle, Wine Advocate gives it 91 points. For my Bucks County locals, I purchased this at Phillips Fine Wines in Stockton. This is a nice bottle for the holidays.
