2016 Villa Malacari Rosso Conero 2016

 
Malarkey it’s not! In fact, this is an amazingly wonderful Italian wine that rated 92 points from Vinous Media critic Eric Guido, who had this to say: “The 2016 Malacari Rosso Conero explodes from the glass with a mix of ripe cherries and blueberries, complemented by hints of cinnamon and clove and a grounding note of fresh bay leaves. It floods the palate with silky richness, ushering in dark ripe fruits and spice in a round and deeply satisfying expression, as fine tannins slowly settle in. The finish is long and structured, yet still quite fresh, balanced by residual acids with a purple floral air, and hints of wild berry lingering on. Wow, this is a mouthful of gorgeous Montepulciano fruit, and it’s a real value score as well.” As I write, Empire Wine is offering this wine for $12.95 plus free shipping.
