2006 Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo: Greg liked it, Victoria was undecided.

may 21, 2010: greg grilled up some andouille sausages that victoria had bought at the newburgh butcher shop on thursday. we weren't certain what to pair with it, since we usually do australian shiraz. but we had purchased this dry red italian at sam's club a couple months prior, and http://winecask.blogspot.com/2010/02/cantina-zaccagnini-montepulciano.html had billed it as fruity. so we thought, why not? as for the results, greg liked it. it had some slight tannins but was also fruity. but victoria said her immediate impression was that it was a bit tightly closed in flavor, though it opened up as the night wore on. it was easy to drink, and held up well against the spicy andouille. less than $20. 13 percent alcohol.
