Villa Cerrina Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2009 (real time review by PB)
Very pretty jewel-like ruby/garnet hue with aromas of cherry and earth,a touch of candy apple and great memories of a Tuscan vacation with (NW) of this blog.
Palate--Fruity pepper but nicely balanced with plenty of flavor and Tuscan terroir. It finishes okay with lingering fruit memories.
Wow! Here's the get a grip factor; this is another Trader Joe's ridiculous value wine for $5 and you just can't find wine this well made and tasty and varietal and classic of the region for this price. Which means--stock up and raise many glasses!
