Fantini Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2017 750ml
"Velvety smooth Gold Medal Italian Red, acclaimed by the world’s top wine writers.
US Supremo Robert Parker hailed it “one to buy by the car-load!”
COLOUR: A ruby red colour with garnet reflections.
NOSE: Intense and persistent fragrance, fruity (red fruit, prunes and dark cherry) with vanilla essence.
PALATE: “This is all about red fruit: vibrant, fresh and expressive with elegant, soft tannins. It’s not the most complex wine but its not trying to be either. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.”
“Instantly appealing with gorgeous ripe black and purple fruit flavours with floral nut and mixed spices. It’s charming, succulent and silky smooth. Outstanding value and a Gold Medal winner in the NZ International Wine Awards”
