Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Roccaventosa

Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Roccaventosa

I don't know the first thing about wine - or I know just the first thing, but that's it - but Montepulciano was a favorite among Italians when I lived in Florence. It's cheap, robust, and sounds good to ask for when you go to an upper crust wine shop with the little lady. (around $12-25 depending on year).
