Chiusa Grande (Tommolo) Montepulciano D'Abruzzo review by (PB)
Black cherry hue with slight cola notes with black cherry and cherry aromas.
Palate--Okay structure but short all around, some steely "Tuscan fruit" but all in all is pretty empty.
This is a Trader Joe's selection at the $6 price point. Now you don't expect much at that price point and in this case that's what you get--not much. But I have posted many reviews of wines at this price point that are bargains so don't lapse in to the snob pool and turn you head based solely on price. TJ's has some great bargains, this just isn't one of them so pass on this.
