2006 Chiusa Grande Tommolo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

While the 2006 vintage is a little rougher around the edges than the
2004 Chiusa Grande Tommolo Montepulciano
, I reviewed earlier, it still is an incredible bargain. Still only $5.00 at Trader Joe's and made from hand picked organically grown grapes. Similarities with the 2004 are the nose of fresh cherry and violets, the cherry/blueberry flavors and the long finish. However this vintage carries a bit of heat on finish and a trace of alcohol/heat at the end of the aromas. Disregarding the comparison to 2004 this is still a nice wine and a sweet value.

I had this one as well and agree with your assessment. Have you had the Epicuro Aglianico? Would be curious to know your thoughts there....
