Montagna Mare Opolo 2009

An intriguing blend of 60% sangiovese from the hillsides of East Paso Robles and 40% barbera from the cooler seaside, this hedonistic wine shows berries and vanilla on the nose with wisps of herbs and earth to add complexity. Round and charming on the palate with sparkling acidity and a silky finish, it reminds me of the friend you call when you need cheering up–not too complex or serious but guaranteed to make you smile.

Fans of the 2008 might find the 09 to have less residual sugar and a bit more grip due to the cooler weather.

Sells for about $28.00. Limited production.

    here Montagna Mare Opolo 2009 | Edible Arts. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it simply me or does it seem like a few of the comments appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
