Bisanzio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOPRegular price €15.00
This is a big, generous and satisfying dry red, with plenty of fruity power and smooth, soft tannins.
You don't need to know the ins and outs of Abruzzese cookery to enjoy it—it's safe to risk offending regional sensitivities about food matching when a wine like this makes such an obvious and satisfying partner for all kinds of informal dishes. Veer towards Italy with lasagne and spaghetti bolognese or pizza, or throw caution to the Adriatic breeze and enjoy it with goulash, Irish stew or fajitas.
This is the kind of hearty red that turns even weekday meals into a special occasion without breaking the bank.
Although Abruzzo lies more or less exactly half-way down the Adriatic coast of eastern Italy, it is, in spirit, part of the south, and this is reflected in the ease with which this wine straddles such a range of cuisines.
