2009 Iskra Montepulciano d' Abruzzo

It is only befitting that we have an Italian meal to pair with an Italian wine. So, when we sampled this 2009 Montepulcianno we set it beside the "El Biggerero Steak Italiano" for a feast fit for Caesar himself. The essence of this meal is steak with an Italian flavor coupled with Spaghetti and a wonderful Italian red wine, in this case the 2009 Iskra Montepuleciano d' Abruzzo. The recipe for Steak Italiano is listed below.

The wine opens with a heady bouquet of dark fruit, leading into flavors of jammy blackberry and black cherry. with a distinct under current of toasty vanilla. The flavors are well rounded and smooth with a pleasant lingering finish. The taste combination with the steak is outstanding, and Norm's score is 89.
