2008 Nicodemi Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2008

My parents have all sorts of delicious vegetables coming out of their garden this year… tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant are just a few.   They made a roasted vegetable lasagna, so I had to pair it with Italian wine of course.  Prior to opening an ’04 Brunello, I opened this bottle.   Definitely fruit forward, I detected absolutely nothing on the nose except tart berries.   Light, pretty fruit on the midpalate and an acidic, berry finish.   The tartness definitely lingers, and this pairs very well with the roasted vegetables in the lasagna.  I prefer my Italian wines a bit more rustic, but this may be a good go-to bottle when I want the light body of a Pinot, yet am consuming Italian food   :-)
