Rigattieri 2007 Montepulciano d`Abruzzo
I like wine that makes me pay attention and this certainly did that. First of all, we must add in a bonus point for the gorgeous rich purple colour as the wine splashed into the glass. The taste though intrigued me being a mixture of vanilla, red berries and nutmeg. This is certainly the best mid-range Monty around at the moment.

Wine rating 6/10. Value: above average
