Zita Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2010
The Abruzzo is an up and down region (That means if it's not mountains, it's hills) in central eastern Italy. It produces large quantities of wine, the soil isn't much good for anything else. Its Montepulcino designation should not be confused with the Tuscan version, which is miles above it, not in altitude but in quality. Still, this is a decent enough red, with perceptible cherry and red berry flavors, perhaps a little too forward, and some acidity. $8.99.
