"Rosso," explains winemaker Scott McLeod, "is a Zinfandel-based wine which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah." The result?
Francis Coppola Presents Rosso has become an instant success. Wine Enthusiast honored it "Wine of the Month." Praise for this unpretentious red has come from many, but the best thing to do is find out for yourself.
The 2000 Francis Coppola Presents Rosso is a Zinfandel-based wine blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah. The result is a beautiful combination of vivid California fruit in an authentic Italian style. On the palate, Rosso is bursting with ripe plum and fresh berry flavors with an up-front style, featuring firm yet smooth tannins, while plum and raspberry flavors with smoky oak round out the finish. With its unique and hearty style, Rosso is easy to drink and meant to be appreciated at the table. Rosso can be enjoyed every day with hamburgers and pizzas and is a perfect accompaniment to hearty Italian dishes.

One of our best finds ever! Bottles of Rosso now consistently outnumber any other bottles of wine in our cabinet. It's wonderful right out of the bottle, but really opens up if you let it breathe a while. The color itself is gorgeous, and the deep, rich, fruit flavors are apparent upon first taste. In all honestly I believe the Rosso's taste/cost ratio is much better than Coppola's Rubicon! This amazingly versatile wine is an absolute staple in our home, as it should be in yours!

A beautiful mouthful of wine! This blend captures the best of all the grapes. For heaven's sake and the sake of your palate, please let this wine breathe before you drink it!!! You will be rewarded for your wait.

This is one of the best, most consistently excellent wines I have ever had. I have been drinking this one for years and plan to for years to come! It's a great drinking wine - y'know what I mean? Goes great alone or with food (any food! really, it's just that good!). Brilliant work, Mr. Coppola! BRAVO!
