Montalbera Fuori Catalogo Piemonte Rosso 2016
Yep, not a typo. It’s so imperative you move like the wind, we are loathe to even say any more!
Crazy, right? 98 POINTS from Luca Maroni (the well-respected Italian reviewer), saying: “An amazing wine for the money, the absolute best Italian value red for the second vintage” and utterly, completely, astoundingly priced TWELVE BUCKS! Now THAT’S why we pilgrimage to Europe 2-3 times a year! WOW!!
We bought every single bottle we could possibly beg, borrow or steal, and it just hit the warehouse. We are kids in a candy store right now, oh yes. How many people have a 98-pointer for a “house wine” price?? Oh, and speaking of the wine --- can you say outrageously quaffable? A tasty, lip-smacking, light-bodied red that is highly, titillatingly intriguing -- it dances around your mouth with bright red/purple fruit, crisp cherries, toasted licorice (we know, seems weird, but it works, trust us), cedar and orange pekoe tea. Almost weightless, with light tannins, and packed with flavor --- it’s a blend of Barbera and Ruche (also a highly rated wine from this winery) --- a massive crowd-pleaser and terrifyingly drinkable!! $12!! Did we mention that??
Goodness --- if you read this far it’s probably gone! Good luck! We got our cases!!!
