Aromas of raspberry, cherry, and cinnamon mark this distinctive blend of Sangiovese and Grenache, or Cannonau as Grenache is known on the Italian island of Sardegna. With extended aging in French oak barrels before bottling, this wine is smooth and silky on the palate, offering hints of milk chocolate and caramel along with the red and black fruit flavors. The complex finish promises a long future for this wine.
This wine is delicious now and will reward patient cellaring for 3-5 years.
Pair with Chicken Alla Diavola or a passata chili with Calabrian peppers. For an appetizer pair with cambozola cheese on ciabatta or focaccia. Other ideas: Mushroom pizza; enjoy with brunch with eggs benedict!
