Villa Medoro Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2009
Oh boy oh boy this is a dirty little number as the main stay of the wine is dirt or potting mix. There are moments of spice, roasted meats and dark cherries intermixed with a lovely acid structure that runs right along the wine and then the tannins kick in. They are like James Bond in that they are very seductive and enchanting and you know that you are on track for an action packed ride. This wine is highly drinkable and oozes juiciness even if it is a little sour. In fact I love that sour mid-palate! I want more. This would be in line for a top three finish for the bargain of the year.
