I must've misinterpreted the clue.

Not quite what I was expecting...

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: Negroamaro 80%, Malvasia Nera 10%, Sangiovese 10%

?

Maybe the "bon vivant southern debutant" that WD was referring to in the last thread is from Southern Italy? Although Venezia is in Northern Italy

On wine-search, it seems you can find this wine for about the same price (but that may not include shipping):

I like Italian wines..I'll take a chance on this one...expanding my horizons.

If I don't like it, it'll go to my wife's cousin at Easter dinner!

...nah, I'm not really that mean

I agree - the clue was pretty solid - wasn't the clue usually for the Monday morning offer though?

Um, the above link is for 2005 not 2007.

Cesare has the correct CT link (as usual).

Also, I have had one of the d'abbruzo already and enjoyed it.

Still, I'll have to pass - already have about 40 bottles on the way from woot this past week and afraid to look at my card damage!

Not having any Italian wines how does this compare to the 2006 cab from the kits killer cab deal a while back? Just opened one of them and it is awesome. I am trying to get a taste difference, not trying to compare them.

Cesare actually created the CT listing for the 2007 vintage, they only had 2005 and 2006 listed until now. Not sure why people try to race to post the CT link when they know Cesare is going to do it anyway.

Not sure where Brindisi is, but Negroamaro is famously grown for Sicilian wines, and also used in other parts of southern Italy. EDIT: Oops! see below, I was confusing Negroamaro with Nero d'Avola, which is the Sicilian grape, and this is mostly from Puglia, and Southern Italy, but the rest is about right. I've been up all night, ok, and it's 6am here, and that was from my android. Wonder if the moderators will change the pullout text on the The Great Wakkorotti message as a result, so as not to confuse the punters!

It loves warm weather and sunshine, and a lot of places in California would do well by replacing their Cab, chard etc with Negroamaro and other Italian and Spanish varieties.

The ones I've tried make nice hefty dark wines with plenty of tannins.

Puglia, Southern Italy.
I got a case of the Montepulciano but didn't try it yet. Guess I know what I'm drinking with dinner tomorrow...

You may be right.. There is another similarly named grape from Sicily then't. Yes I was thinking of Nero D'Avola. This its softer and more fragrant than that, but it still likes southern Italian weather
I do like negroamaro in a Salice Salentino, I do know that, which is from Salentino, near Puglia.

Agree fully chipgreen. Thus my original post in reply to the incorrect CT link.

Ahhhh... I was just going off the winery location of Venezia on the offer page which I guess is just for the exporter, not the actual winery.

See map:

Many years ago, I spent a wonderful few days there. I remember delicious meals out in the Mediterranean sun, drinking $1 bottles of the local wine... no labels, just delicious and perfect for washing down plates of pasta with wonderful sauce and of course bread.

Have to get some of this, just for the memories.

That $16.99 per bottle doesn't include shipping or tax, which bumps up the per bottle to about $24.

Interestingly, this also has Malvasia Nera in the blend, which makes it perhaps very close to a Salice Salentino... and indeed looking at the map Brindisi is just to the north of Salice. The Sangiovese wouldn't be allowed in a Salice Salentino blend, however!

I drank one of the Montepulcianos earlier this week and was pleasanty surprised.

I ordered the Montepulciano 4-pack and I've already had two bottles. I think it is excellent. Smooth, easy-drinking, great by itself or with pizza/pasta.

Interesting summary from the LA Times Wine Club and Vinesse:

This spicy, savory wine offers notes of ripe cherry, meat, licorice, blackberry, spices, toasted nuts and caramel.


I'm having trouble imagining how the meat and caramel blend with the other flavors.

Imagine this for a minute:

Take a large pork loin, butterfly or even better cut a spiral in to lay it out thinner. Sprinkle on salt, pepper, and thinly sliced fennel (slight licorice flavor).
Roll this back up and tie with cooking twine. Roll this in a mixture of Italian herbs. Place on a baking pan and drape the meat with strips of fatty bacon to keep the loin moist. Cook slowly for 3-4 hours. For the last 30 min or so, pull off the bacon and allow the roast to take on some color.

Serve sliced into pinwheels and spoon fresh warm cherry/blackberry compote over the top. Serve with a wild rice blend or scalloped potatoes (of the Cream, Butter, Potato, spices variety, no cheese). And a favorite green vegetable.

Since the nutty/caramel comment is almost certainly a finish then I propose this for dessert: sweet pecan crusted cheesecake with a caramel drizzle leaving a rich long finish in your mouth.


And THAT is how those flavors go together.

And now I have 12 hours of work before even thinking about dinner.... Gee thanks

Which I'm guessing might be an error. The '2007 Tor del Colle Montepulciano' offer from earlier this month shipped to Virginia.

I want this, I enjoyed the Montepulciano. Unfortunately, VA is not on the list, how can that be when the other order from the same winery was sent to VA? Tell me you made a mistake, please...
