Supermarket wines: Tesco Finest Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2020

I often find the Tesco Finest wines to be on the elegant side, rather focusing on balance than power, and this Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is no exception. Recommendable.

Kindof an Italian alternative to Bordeaux – dark, structured, has weight,  extraction and firm tannins. Dried black fruits, leather and walnuts on the nose, and just a touch of oak. Seamless, velvety and grippy. A simple, everyday version of its genre, but well made and quite pleasant. 84 points, OK value for 1600 HUF, costs £7.00 in UK.
