September - Wine of the Week

2016 Illuminati "Riparosso" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Abruzzo, Italy

This week we've found an unbeatable 93 point show-stopping value with the 2016 Illuminati "Riparosso" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Coming from a single-hillside-vineyard on their renowned, family-owned estate with over 120 years of history and tradition, the "Riparosso" delivers everything we love about traditional Italian red wine for less than $12 a bottle!
 
We think Suckling's description sums it up perfectly... "Full-bodied, layered and rich with a long and flavorful finish. Soft and beautiful. Very serious."
 
Not to mention... Gambero Rosso, Italy's "Wine Bible" awarded the Riparosso "Best Quality to Price Wine" of the year and Due Bicchieri (Two Glasses), which ranks it as one of the country's top values of the vintage!
Packed with a food-friendly, Italian personality that's texturally rich and utterly delicious, it's perfect for every-day enjoyment, parties or holiday gatherings.
 
Load up, guilt-free at this week's sale price while it lasts!
