Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 1999
This is one to avoid. There is nothing wrong with the producer: their 1998 and 2000 wines are OK. It is nothing to do with the vintage: other bottlers have produced decent wines from 1999. The problem only concerns this year from this bottler.

The wine cost DeM2.99 from the Plus in Germany and this was the same price as the 1998 vontage. We bought that wine very regularly as it was an eminently drinkable wine at a very keen price. The 1999 fell well short of that though. It was thin, with little body and an unfinished taste.

It's just one notch better than "for cooking only" but that is all.

Wine rating 4/10. Value 0
