Buy of the Week AU

Illuminati Riparosso Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2014, Abruzzo, AUD $10

Riparosso has been a great bargain for many years, and the current release is as good as I can remember. It’s surprisingly rich, properly ripe, with soft tannins, and shows impressive depth for a wine of its price. A clean, well-made red that deserves to be everyone’s house imported red. (Screwcap)
