2010 Barba Vasari Montepulciano Sponsored Wine Review by Billy
Palate: Strong and tight acids that come on early and strong. Very soft tannins leave a thin feel and a medium body. Plums are prominent flavors in the mouth.
Finish: Elegant finish characterized by more plum and earthy notes.
Overall: The nose is great on this Italian red wine. The medium body and thin mouth feel makes this easy to drink. It is an elegant wine with a small, unobtrusive footprint. It will complement meals rather than take center stage. List price on this wine is $10.99. Special thanks to the PR team at Colangelo & Partners Public Relations for providing the media samples.
The label to the right says 2009, we reviewed the 2010.
