I don’t know about you but the the holiday season put a pretty good dent into our “table wine” reserves. So this week we have a killer 92 Point Montepulciano d’Abruzzo that will be perfect for refilling your depleted red rack. There are few wines more versatile than Montepulciano. Smooth, medium bodied, rarely over-oaked, and bursting with bright red fruit, Montepulciano is always a good answer to the question, “Which Red should we open now?”. The 2016 Masciarelli Montepulcaino opens with a lovely nose of ripe plums dusted with cocoa powder. That soft, smooth nose is followed by a lush palate highlighted by wild strawberries and raspberry coulis. On the back of the palate you’ll find a Red that has no hard edges. Instead, the finish is generous and friendly with just a kiss of tar and underbrush lingering in between sips. A flawless pizza and pasta wine, the 2016 Masciarelli Montepulciano is sure to perform admirably when you feel like having a great glass of Red! Pair it with pizza, pasta with red sauce, or a friendly little antipasto plate of cured meats, cheeses, olives, and crusty bread.
Food Pairing:Montepulciano is dynamite table wine in the classic European tradition of creating smooth, drinkable, unencumbered Reds. This particular example, the 2016 Masciarelli, is so fresh and alive on the palate that it is sure to elevate simple meals like pizza and pasta. It would be especially at home alongside a panini or a plate of burrata and crusty bread. Really, you just want to open this one. You don’t need a reason or a pairing or any of that stuff in order to enjoy this Red. You just need a glass and a few free minutes.
