Warburn 1164 LR 2009 NSW Montepulciano

Montepulciano is the next most significant Italian red grape after the dominant Sangiovese. It's late ripening so plantings are in central and southern Italy which makes me surprised that more isn't grown in the warmer irrigated areas of Australia. 
Especially after tasting this superb effort.

This is a rich robust red with layers of fruit complexity and an acceptable 14.5% a/v. If you're looking for something excitingly different, while still being a mainstream red, this is the one for you.

Our Price: $13 per bottle by the dozen
