If I'm reading the right thing on CT, this vintage has a 90 pt rating, based on 3 notes.

From the website:
"Appelation
Marche, Red, Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT)
Grape varieties
Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Colour
Fairly intense purplish ruby.
Bouquet
Fine and expressive nose of blackberries, leather, mild spices and menthol.
Taste
Supple attack on the palate with a pleasing tannic structure. An ample yet elegant wine.
Serve at 17°C with a grilled tuna steak drizzled with an ‘au jus' sauce hinted with cinnamon or a lacquered loin of pork with Ras el Hanout."

Ummmm....MENTHOL????? No thanks.

I bought an order in the last woot off. I took two bottles (along with some others) home for mother's day weekend. We had it with a grilled meal of skirt steak, chicken thighs and asparagus. It was very smooth with a nice finish. It was much more than I expected. I ordered three to keep some stocked at my mother's house because it was one of the few things that she and my sister in law agreed on (a very rare occurrence).

I've been trying to be good during this Woot-off, but I might finally give in and buy this one. Plus, I like it when the imported wines are available in Texas.

Imported from San Carlos, CA?

This looks really good, but I'm confused -- is the wine from Italy or California?

Somehow it seems appropriate that the targeted ad at the bottom of this Woot forum screen currently says:

Methamphetamine Addiction
Expert Treatment for Professionals
Innovative/Results-Driven Therapy

I wonder if they have a program for wine buying addiction?

In for 1!

Thanks. That's what I thought but wanted to make sure. I ordered one, and have a feeling that I'll regret not doubling up.

I have a question- when it comes to "Residual Sugar: 4.97 g/l" how does that translate into percentage? (Math is not my thing- at all)

Ok Mr. Harvey, your lurking...I am hoping for a Jana surprise soon! Which would make sense since I just ordered the vertical...

I too was confused as to who made this wine. Then I saw this listing Dominick Chirichillo as a distributor.

Maybe I'll go for consecutive wooter to blame for sell out :D

And as others have noted, imported wines don't come straight from overseas, but have to go through an importer (which in this case would be in California).

0.497%

Lower than the SH Inzinerator, but higher than many traditional reds.

Looks like a fun Italian red from an Adriatic coastal area @ $15/bottle. The owners of the winery are US and their home base is in California. From the bio materials, it looks like a 2nd gen American of Italian descent who makes wines in Cali reached back to the old country and built a spiffy new winery.

Regards,

Greg

While it has only one sentence related to this wine this is a nice write up about a visit to the winery/hotel.

Drinking this tonight... maybe I should have let it rest longer after its journey across country, as it was a little disappointing. Here was my tasting note I left on CT:

Strong alcohol/glue on the nose, almost unpleasant. Hot fruit in the mouth, acidic, not very complex. Medium finish. Maybe better paired with the right food. 83.

P.S. I think it's worthwhile circling back and leaving notes about our purchased wines, particularly so that if they come up for sale again future potential Wooters will have some context. Cheers.

I like that idea as I am drinking a glass now. My tasting is opposite of yours though. I am a huge fan of Italian wines for the high acidity, however this is not one.

This is drinking very smooth and balanced. There is a small hint if any of alcohol. There is a small to medium finish that I was hoping would be longer.

As for taste, they were right on with the description: red fruits with some blackberries.

QPR? Great, for an American Italian wine, just remember it does not have that high acidic punch that I have grown to love from Italian wines.
