Masciarelli 2002 Montepulciano D’Abruzzo wine review by (PB)
This is a lighter ruby with a touch of candy cherry on a light bouquet with a very herbal (Daffodil) nose.
It is sweeter in the mouth than I would have thought but it is not sweet. There is a note of alcohol, it is dry, a hint of chocolate and it is hot. It finishes thin and harsh.
With some air time though, all things tone down and there is a nice hint of cinnamon in the bouquet. A layer of dried fruit comes up after breathing. It finishes short. For the price of this wine--$6– I like it! It has a lot to commend it at this price so take advantage of these super inexpensive wines that are more than one dimensional. Raise a glass!
