Fantastic value for money

The label says that 2016 was the best year ever for this wine. At the current offer price, fill your boots, it is great value!

Very disappointed

1 stars

Really disappointed with this. Shouldn't be in the 'Finest' range. I am usually very impressed with the 'Finest' products, but this was bad. Tasted like it had a load of oak chip added but that wasn't mentioned on the bottle. Really dry. Ditched the rest of the bottle.

Where is the taste of Italy ?

2 stars

Oh dear - what a disappointment from the flagship Tesco label. Absolutely no flavour of Italy, Back to the drawing board. Are the Italians keeping the best of the Montepulciano for themselves? Perhaps the focus on driving a hard price bargain is coming home to roost.

Great bargain Italian for everyday drinking.

4 stars

Soft, mellow, fruity. Very quaffable and a bargain at this price.

Very disappointing

I cannot understand all the good reviews of this wine. When Montepulciano D'Abruzzo was new to the UK about 10-15 years ago it was usually a fabulous buy. Presumably the Italians have also discovered it now, and keep the good stuff for themselves. The label says 'bold and full bodied', but I would sum it up as rough and unpleasant.

Unmistakenly Italian, lucious, juicy, very drinkable and affordable.Has become the house/table wine for this month at least. Its been that before and may probably be again.


4 stars

A lovely smooth, full flavoured example of this usually underrated central Italian red. excellent value.
