Winemaker's Notes

This vibrant red wine is made from 100% Teroldego (teh-RAWL-deh-goh) grapes grown in the northern Italian province of Trentino, from vineyards surrounding the Rotaliana plain, north of the city of Trento. Hand-picked grapes are macerated on the skins for 8-10 days in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is matured partly in large Slavonian oak casks for three months to preserve its distinctive fruit concentration and smooth tannins.

Aromas of fresh raspberries and blackberries give way to a palate that is medium-bodied and dry with flavors of black cherries, wild berries and a hint of almond. The taste leads into a long finish with a profile similar to Shiraz. Color is ruby red with violet reflections.

Very food-friendly, and terrific with grilled or roasted red meats, pastas, risottos and fish dishes prepared with flavorful sauces. Enjoy at room temperature.

Purchased a case of this delightful wine for about 6 dollars a bottle. For the price I was very pleased. Although I would not buy it for the full $13 per bottle as it is normally priced, when below $10/bottle it makes quite a deal. Great holiday gift, or great compliment to Cajun pasta!
