Tini – Montepulciano D’Abruzzo. This wine comes from the region of Abruzzo. It lies between the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso mountain range.
We are now presenting a red wine again. Last year we wrote about the American wine Woodpeak Hills Zinfandel but now we have chosen an Italian one. Is there any difference? It depends on who we ask and what situation we are in.
For people with very sensitive sense of taste maybe there is noticeable difference. Enjoying this wine we actually did not notice anything so irregular. The taste was typical for red wine. It was easy to drink though. Comparing to Woodpeak Hills Zinfandel with 14% alcohol, this bottle of Tini – Montepulciano D’Abruzzo contains 12,5% only. Maybe that affects the taste and makes the wine easier to drink.
While tasting we decided to combine it with some snacks. We also took some glasses together with some food. It was very good with a beef and potatoes made in oven. Not only snacks and meat were good combination. Also green grapes were a very tasty add on. The fresh and little bit sweet taste of grapes made the wine taste softer.
This wine comes from the region of Abruzzo. It lies between the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso mountain range. That area offers ideal conditions to grow grapes. It is probably so because of the cooling sea breezes and rocky mountains. Montepulciano is the most well-known red grape variety of the Abruzzo region.
However, can we recommend this wine? If you love red wines then this one is for sure the one you should taste. It has its own tasty soul and that is why it should be on the ”must taste” list.
