Illuminati “Riparosso” Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2009

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Abruzzo, Italy

Produced from 100% Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Illuminati’s Riparosso spends 4 months in large Slavonian oak.  Showing plump dark fruit both on the nose and palate, this wine finishes both racy and round.

This has always been one of our top values, and is a perennial favourite around our office.

And, with a recent silver at the Decanter World Wine Awards, it’s an incredible value not to be missed!
