Niro di Citra Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2017

Dark in color with a mild cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice varietal black cherry notes along with some nice mocha and coffee. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant acidity along with some nice smooth velvety tannins, nice and dry. We paired this with a red sauce pasta and it went well, but without food the palate coating richness of this wine is even more prominent. This wine definitely punches above it’s price point, it’s a bargain and yum to boot. I’ve give it an 88 or so. From the LCBO web site, check stock, I’ll definitely go back and grab more!:
