Ilauri Bajo Montepulciano D’Abruzzo (2012) A Winner for Red Sauce and Beyond

You’ve been simmering the sauce for hours and the kitchen smells like your favorite Italian restaurant on the west side from when you were a kid. The water is boiling for the vermicelli and the Italian sausage and meatballs have been harmonizing with the sauce nearly as long as when you began your dinner preparations. The meal is only a few minutes away. Suddenly, it occurs to you that you forgot to pick up the Chianti Classico you had been dreaming about for weeks. Don’t panic. Check the wine rack and see if there is a substitute. Ah ha! You forgot about the Inexpensive Italian red you picked up at Premier the other day. But, will it do the trick? Not to worry. Remember? You bought the Ilauri Bajo Montepulciano D’Abruzzo for the crazy price of $8.99. This affordable yet delightful wine will be perfect for your dinner.
Aged 6 months in new French oak barrels, Bajo is a medium bodied wine with ripe fruit notes like blueberry, tart cherry and plum jam. There are also lovely spice notes like clove and anise. This wine will do your dinner proud.
This wine is also versatile enough to go with grilled eggplant, lasagna, veal parmesan or sausage pizza.
