Weekly Wine – Colle Secco

12 Nov

SONY DSCColle Secco Montepulciano D’Abruzzo
2011
Italy
750ml
13% ABV
$9.25 (LCBO)

I drank this wine last night, as I’m writing, and I am having trouble remembering it. I didn’t have the whole bottle, I shared it with friends. I might have had a glass or two of this.
I recall saying that this was one of the under ten dollar wines and everybody commented that they liked it and thought it would not be as good as it was.
No one commented that it was excellent. It was OK. Like most wines in this price range available at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO)
The wine is OK.
Not spectacular.
Not offensive.
Not memorable.
It was pleasant to drink, and got favourable comments.
What more can a wine under ten bucks want.
