A killer value. Good Montepulciano is sort of like good Merlot both in taste and frequency of its appearance. Delicious and rare in a sea of very mediocre examples. The Caleo is the exception and it's dirt cheap. This is a real Autumn/Winter red wine find for this price. It won't let your meat loaf. Deep ruby red color with violet reflections. Intense aroma of dried fruits and flowers. Savory black cherry fruit with velvety, soft tannins and a good fruit acid balance. And did I say it's only $11?
