Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2000
This was more like it. I was surprised at the 1999 from this source as it was not very good and I have come to expect more from the wine buyer in the Plus. I think that they recognised the problem though as the 1999 seemed to make way for the 2000 very quickly. This wine is just as good as the 1998. Not special but if you want a thoroughly drinkable dry red wine for less than three marks a bottle, this is where you come!
It has a nice rich colour and fresh tase, it makes a fine way to wash down that Saturday lunchtime pizza.
They just put the price up so it is no longer quite the bargain that it was. Still a good slurp though.
Wine rating 5/10. Value 0.
