Weekly Wine – Dragani

10 May

Dragani Montepulciano D’Abruzzo Doc
2015
Italy
750ml
12.5% ABV
$7.95 (LCBO)

I think I reviewed this wine last year. But it was a 2013 vintage and it cost a whopping 20 cents more.
Things don’t usually get cheaper – do they?
Imported wine usually does not get cheaper as the years roll by – does it?
Well this one, if it is the same and I think it is, did get cheaper – less expensive – more affordable.
I liked the 2013 vintage so is the 2015 up to snuff?
The short answer is yes. The longer answer is yes, indeed.
This is a very nicely balanced wine. There are no off flavours here just some nice indescribable fruit flavours – you get a bit of grape and cherry but you need to concentrate to pull these flavours out. It is quite pleasant and has a nice medium body that is perfectly dry.
At under eight bucks this is a fantastic value.
