Bosco Eclipse Montepuliano D'Abruzzo
Made from the montepulciano grape in the central Italian region of Abruzzo, this red is remarkably concentrated for the money. Medium-full-bodied and juicy, it offers up a core of cherry jam, with nuances of chocolate and spice and a firm backbone of acidity and tannin.
The instinct here might be to pair the wine with pizza or pasta, but it's uncommonly versatile and would match nicely with a range of other foods, including roast chicken and steak.
Tasting Note: Deep ruby colour; berry fruit with a touch of chocolate, smoke and mild barnyard; medium-bodied with plum & berry flavours and a touch of spice to finish
