Weekend Wine Selection - Under $10

I enjoyed this excellent wine last night while we spent a lovely evening at home.  In an attempt to give the bank account a rest, my husband and I planned a simple meal accompanied by a delicious and inexpensive wine.

The Meal: Penne topped with a spicy Italian sausage, spinach and tomato sauce, sprinkled with finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.  This gratifying meal was both easy and economical to put together.

The Wine: 2008 Farnese ‘Casale Vecchio’ Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, this dry and full-bodied red from Italy sells for $9.85 at the LCBO.  I found it to be both sweet and spicy with firm tannins.  After an initial taste, I decided to decant this wine before enjoying it fully.
