I was real excited when I was told that we would be bringing in a Vino Sfuso, or bulk wine. I was hoping for a 3 to 4 liter bag in a box that we could sell for cheap, I was envisioning a big stack of it right by the door that would just fly out of the building. I was disappointed to see that it came in a traditional 750ml bottle, but for $6.99, I quickly got over it. This is made from 100% Montepulciano grown in the Marche. A vibrant nose with dark red and black fruits, the palate is dominated by lots of primary fruit tones and it has a modest finish with good acidity. It is a perfect café red. Grilled meats, earthy cheeses, and simple pastas all work with this little charmer, buy it by the case!
