Wine Review: The dark ruby colored blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese blend from Italy opens with a new leather, blackberry, and pipe tobacco bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is a stony mineral influenced tart blackberry with notes of oregano and cedar. The finish is dry, and its flavors and dusty tannins stick around for quite a while. I would pair this good value Italian weekday wine with Delish pizza burgers or spaghetti with sweet Italian sausage. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This contemporary version of Rosso Piceno displays a deep ruby red, then offers classic varietal spice, along with lovely scents of vanilla, chocolate, and wild red berries. A dense weave of velvety tannins characterizes the appealing, seductive palate, and the lingering finish is impressive. It’s the perfect companion to the traditional dishes of Central Italy, as well as innovative dishes of Italy’s contemporary cuisine.
