Amazing Red Lunch To Late
Glug 'The Italian Job II' Barossa Valley Montepulciano 2017

Region: Barossa Valley, SA

I have moved my view of this wine from ‘how interesting’ when first tried into the better category of ‘very good indeed’. Benjamin has been playing around with a batch of unusual Barossa varities in his endless quest to make interesting to great wines. The story I have been told is that Greg Liebelt went to a local winery to pick up some recent purchases which were in barrel.

He says that inadvertently he also hoisted two barrels of this fine Montepulciano onto the truck. Later noting the error they rang the winemaker who said for all the trouble he would sell one barrel, and thus this wine became known as the Italian job. It was duly bottled for the February tasting and not being around I had no idea of its existence till much later.

The variety is one of the dozen or so new plantings that are being adapted to the Barossa. I like the wine and while new things are hard to introduce I hope it has a future. Full flavoured but in that Italian way, so it does it for me for that late lunch.

Price: $9.99
