The Donna Review
I do like a Montepulciano and as this is Italian I had high expectations of this. But it is not overly Montepulciano I can’t explain why. The bouquet is gorgeous!
So all in all if you didn’t know which grape this was and you were served this in Italy as a house wine, you would think okay this isn’t bad. I feel like they have put the wrong label on this. It does seem heavy on the fruit and there is an aftertaste with a slight tanginess to this.
I do feel that there is Montepulciano definitely coming through very subtly – so think this might be better with age.
Man with no palate Review
I have been very fortunate enough to have visited Italy on a handful of occasions. This is not a cosmopolitan wine, it is dusty, a little bit harsh but like Italy the more you drink it the more it grows on you. This is not the best Montepulciano but to me it is an honest wine, if you were paying under $10. Personally I think at $14.99 this is somewhat overpriced.
Wine Rating: 3.5/5
Zonin Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2020 Bottle Label Description
Description below supplied by winery.
Colour: Bright, attractive and warm, ruby-red colour.
Palate: Dry on the palate, with delicate veining, a fine and harmonious balance, great strength and sturdy body. The aftertaste is highly persistent and delectably clean.
The wine can be consumed throughout a meal and makes a particularly fine accompaniment for all meat dishes, savory preparations of the rural tradition and cheese that have been aged for moderate to long periods.
