The key to great Italian drinking

Master of Wine Steve Bennett has a knack of discovering some great value wines and he has certainly done that with the La Chiave Montepulciano. It's a smooth and savoury wine with plenty of fruit, flavour and guts to keep you quaffing happily. It will also go down very well with all manner of Italian styled food.

90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Sweetly fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows spiced cherry, plum, vanilla, hazelnut and game characters with a hint of cocoa. The palate delivers succulent fruit flavours and beautifully rounded mouthfeel, leading to a lingering smooth finish. This brilliantly priced montepulciano is flavoursome and friendly with lovely spicy complexity. At its best: now to 2020."

89/100 Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage)
"Smooth, savoury, moderately gutsy red in a quaffable style. Good value at this price."
