We have consistently stocked this label for over 20 years and it has continually offered one of the best drinking values out of Italy, whether it be for a classic pizza or that friendly 'anytime' glass of wine. And amazingly, it is the same price now as it was 20 years ago. 

Oz Clarke
"Montepulciano is a tremendous grape, full of plummy depth, but since it is mostly grown in some of Italy's more rustic wine areas, too often the flavours are rustic too. But this one captures all the dark plum core of flavour but balances it with nice bright acid which allows the fruit to be juicy and mouth-watering even as the wine itself is pretty solid."

Reviews for the 2015 vintage below…

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the wine shows dark plum, blueberry, toasted almond and subtle game characters on the nose, followed by a nicely weighted palate that is ripe, silky and flavoursome with supple mouthfeel and fine tannins. This is modern, approachable and friendly, and offers fabulous everyday drinking. At its best: now to 2019."
