Last look (Gran Sasso Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2008)

What did I think of this wine in 2009?

This is very tasty. Great colour and good fruit intensity. Cracking value at $120 delivered for a case. Dangerously easy to drink with barbecued food, or pizza.

Where is it now, with my last bottle from a case?

Still good fruit, but less of it than previous bottles. As the fruit drops away, notes of astringency and bitterness sound out more clearly. Drink up now, if not already.

Top-notch value Italian drinking over a couple of years from a case delivered for $120. Not much more to ask for, really.
