    “Italy makes so much wine, even the Italians get confused about it. Some of it is astonishingly good. Others are pretty ordinary. How do you find a way in? You need a key – or, as the Italians
    would say la chiave. You’re holding one in your hand, right now!”

    The absolute classic ripe, soft and highly drinkable Montepulciano (mon-ta-pull-cheeanno) from the d’Abruzzo region of Italy at a damn good price. All with the seal of approval from an NZ Master of Wine, Steve Bennett, who sourced and imported this one from his key contacts in Italy. Nice one, Steve.

    Pair this cheeky little Italian with pizzas, pastas or a hearty bowl of spag’bol.
