So, for the past two days I’ve been drinking Cantina Zaccagnini’s montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Now, all it says on the bottle is “Red Dry Wine.” Can I start with, “Holy shit, this stuff is DAAAAMN fine.” It’s like currents were soaked in oak chips, and smoked all together, then barely dowsed with spices and left to soak with a hint of nutmeg and a vanilla bean. For years. In the best barrels. I’m not even sure what to say about this wine, because nothing has come close for me. I’ve even tasted an amazing $200 bottle of pinot noir (so good), yet this $18 bottle has more complexity. I’m undone by the depth to what’s happening in my mouth right now. It’s so classy… and yet all I can do now is grab at this beautiful woman, because sex MUST follow this wine. Oye. Five stars from me!
