Another fine value here from Illuminati: an honest, flavourful, charcterful wine at a very fair price. No more, no...

A good, old fashioned Montepulciano d’Abbruzzo and, along with young Chianti, one of my go-to pizza & spaghetti on Wednesday wines.

Deep, bright red. Hot, spicy, fruity nose. Medium body. Hot & tangy. Sort of like a rustic Barbera with attitude and tannins. Boozy but plenty of flavour. Palate cleaning acidity and bright fruit make this a great Cheese-&-tomato-dish wine.

Drink this next Wednesday with a pizza and tell me it's not a perfect match.

Wine snobs take note: The best food wines are often inexpensive (and Italian)!

Drink young.
