Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Predella 2009

I bought a bottle of the Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Predella 2009 for using it in my Osso Buco Milanese recipe (about half a bottle of it). Of course, the other half a bottle ended up in my glass. 
It was just to be used strictly for cooking purposes, as it is priced under 10 dollars per bottle.
And indeed, it's not a great and noble wine, but I think I discovered the best value for money wine in Romanian supermarkets today.
It is soft, table wine by definition, with smells of wood, berries, leather. No nasty aftertaste. Totally drinkable. So, Montepulciano D'Abruzzo Predella is my recommendation for under 10 dollar wines this winter.


  1. WOW, What a POINT.
    We also use to buy this one for our aperitifs he in Bucharest.

    Glad to meet another Montepulciano fan :)


  2. Yes, mate. Keep enjoying fine food and wine no matter what the price is! Cheers!

  3. I tried a bottle like this and all I can say is that is some coloured water with alcohol and some strong tanin taste. No aroma, no nothing. Luckily it was a gift that I received.
    I don't know what's all this fuss with Italian wine, the Romanian ones are an order of magnitude tastier.

  4. well, to be fair and stay with the facts it is a 2$ wine -all metro shops in germany - and therefore indeed not that easy to competed. But watch out! there are a lot of shops selling it nearly at 10$...
