Tenuta del Priore, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, 2008 DOC

Tenuta del Priore, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, 2008 DOC ($13)  This red wine from the red clay soils of Central Italy’s Eastern Abruzzo region flows into the glass with strong dark red color, the nose expresses some red and dark fruit aromas.   All flavors of savory, rustic red fruits and underlying notes of raspberry come through with a cleanness (and noted absence of oak) that I always look forward to when tasting food-centric Italian wines.   This Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is clean yet well concentrated for this price point, with a fine and balanced finish – a great wine to pair with rich and/or savory pastas.

    What is a 1981 bottle of Tenuta del Priore Montepulciano d’Abruzzo worth today?

    • Hi Deborah,
      If you know exactly how the bottle has been stored, you may want to open it and enjoy it (IF it is still good), but I would be fearful that time may have taken a toll on the wine.
      The value of a 1981 bottle of wine today (unless from a very famous winery, and while this is a good wine, it is not famous in the way a top growth bordeaux is famaous) is probably less than the original release price.
      Hope you enjoy it.
