La Quercia 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva, Abruzzo Italy
Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is always a crowd pleasing, juicy Italian red wine that goes great with a wide variety of foods but this is La Quercia’s Riserva Montepulciano which is aged longer and in oak barrels that really elevates this normally rustic wine. Their 2016 Riserva is dark, rich and smooth with ripe plum and blackberry fruits and notes of earth and spice. This is made for richer pastas and meats. An amazing value and 100% organic!
