RED WINE: Palazzo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

. . . del Piani Penuzzo Montebruno d’Abrazzi Regazzi Allontanata San Gimignano Amalfi.  Long name, short aftertaste; this cheap wine is the Roman equivalent of a trip to Siena for the Palio, stopping to see the David, the aesthetic beauty of the Pietà, and the coldness factor of a free Tuscan fountain, on a wine tour, in the country. Full-bodied, decently fruity, nice and pretentious.

$9.99 at Doma.
