Well knock me down with a feather – or as they say in Italy La Piuma!
In any case you’ll be blown away by yet another super European wine bargain brought to NZ’s shores by Master of Wine Steve Bennett. The wine is made by MGM – no, not the Hollywood movie producer but Mondo del Vino. They’re a world renowned wine company of almost 30 years and the first in Europe to embrace the EU green policy, they’re previous winners of No.1 European Wine Producer at one of the largest wine award shows in Europe, the Mundus Vini Awards.
This is Montepulciano (pronounced mon-ta-pull-channo) and if you’re new to this style think of it as the go-to medium bodied, bright and juicy style Italian red that offers plenty of value. Scoring 92/100 and selected as the No.1 Top Red for July 2023 by Master of Wine Bob Campbell, Bob said “Bright, high energy red with cassis, dark cherry/berry, cacao powder, liquorice and spice supported by a pleasantly drying backbone of fine tannins and gentle acidity. Accessible now, the wine is very good value at this price ($20).”
As Master of Wine and importer Steve Bennett says “Wines like this beauty is why Montepulciano is one of Italy’s most popular reds.”
Perfect with grilled vegetables, pizza, pasta or with lamb skewers.
