Fruity with a not so small hint of spice, this is a great wine to pair with, well, obviously with Italian food (I had a polenta primavera tonight). I wouldn't hesitate to serve this with any wonderfully rich food, including cheeses, game, red meats, and chocolates (of course, I'll pair many, many things with a good, dark chocolate!) Italy goes up in my estimate be producing this wine. Grab a bottle or two...and enjoy!!
