San Lorenzo Collina Barcaione Montepulciano - Marche
Bottle size: 750ml
Here is another cracker from the up and coming Le Marche region of Italy, renowned by savvy Italian wine buyers for the outstanding quality of the wines, as well as the impressive value, especially in comparison to more hyped regions like Tuscany which lies just to the West.
Le Marche is on the Eastern Coast of Central Italy, a stunning untamed wine region that is just now starting to get the recognition it deserves. As the wines are relatively unknown outside of Italy, the prices are still easy on the wallet.
Montepulciano and some Sangiovese are the main red grapes, although this beautiful example from San Lorenzo is 100% Montepulciano. A full bodied, brooding, dark, complex wine that is both layered and delicious to drink. A perfect wine for the change of season towards more cooler weather, to be enjoyed with hearty dishes like beef bolognese, grilled and smoked meats, osso bucco, meaty pizzas, and strong flavoured Italian cheese.
Very Italianate on the nose showing wild herbs, sweet tobacco, old leather, and dark rich cherry, wild raspberry and ripe plummy fruit. The palate is soft, full-bodied, beautifully rounded and smooth, revealing impressive weight and pinpoint Montepulciano varietal characters that echo the nose.
A lovely heavier style Italian red that is quite simply awesome for the money. CR
