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!

This is our favorite everyday wine. We have tried many others (some much more expensive) and always end-up coming back to the Masciarelli. If you like a dry red, this one should try.
