Costco Fort Oglethorpe Wines!

One of our favorite everyday drinking wines at Costco is the Montepulciano D’ Abruzzo. This wine is a red blend from the Abruzzo area of Italy, which is east of Rome. This wine is produced from 100% of Montepulciano grapes and is aged 8 months in Slavonian Oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle. This wine has a dark ruby red color and has the aromas of maturated red fruit and a secondary spicy smell. This wine has a complex, rich nose, and is full to medium bodied with a long, fruit driven finish. This wine pairs well with cheese, red meat, or game. Priced at $8.99 per bottle, this is a value that everyone should have in their wine cellar. Let us know your thoughts after tasting. Cheers!
