This red is aromatic, fresh, with ripe cherry and hints of blackberry and other fruit and there is also a delicious savory aspect to this wine. Casteggio "Oltrepo Pavese" Sangue di Giuda 2010 is a sparkler made from 80% Croatina, 20% Uva Rara. There is a density to this luscious wine and an overwhelming impression of freshness and fine fruit. The light tannins help to give the wine structure.
In addition to this wine being a magnificent pairing with dessert, it would be a wonderful accompaniment to any meat dish, from a beautiful roast to a plate of thinly sliced beef Carpaccio.
Light & Fruity
That's 5 stars for my taste. It has a lighter taste and is good with food or by itself. Not for a person who wants it very dry and bitter.
