What’s in the glass tonight April 13th

Framingham Marlborough Montepulciano 2009 – $$$

The wheels came off this one I fear. I have no experience with this variety so it’s difficult to know what to expect. I had high hopes though…

The colour looked promising. Black plum colour. 13%. But there was no enticing aroma from the glass.

The wine was thin and watery in the mouth. Even after sitting it a while to open up it remained lifeless and metallic. No richness. No ripeness.

I kept the bottle for a few days and it wasn’t until the third day that it started showing some of the cherries, tar and spice it claimed on the tin. Too little too late. 2
