As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Rosso di Montepulciano is a lighter, more accessible sibling to Vino Nobile. That makes it easier to drink younger and, with less oak ageing, it can be more fruity and juicy. This wine is named after Sabatino Lulli, ‘Sabazio’. He was the monk in the middle ages who first described how to ferment wine here. The Dom Perignon of Montepulciano.
