I blame my new love of Montepulciano wine on Soho House. It became my g to when the house red was switch out. It's the 2nd most planted red grape in Italy. The medium bodied wine has notes of plums, cherries, boysenberries, and tobacco.
My selection for the night is a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC by Caitina Zaccagnini ($15). The ruby colored wine has notes of violets and plums. The wine pairs well with meaty dishes like lasagna and pizza. I'll be a pairing with a cheesy garlic pasta. What's in your glass?
