"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.

This is the fourth Neibaum-Coppola wine I have tried in the last two months, with the previous three being the Diamond Series Blue Label Merlot (1999), Green Label Syrah (2000) and Black Label Claret (2000) aka Cabernet Sauvignon. I enjoyed each of those three with the Merlot being my favorite. So I could not pass up on this Rosso with it's blend of four types of wines. I am glad I tried it. It's a fun wine which is "jolly", not at all bitter and looks as if it will go well with many types of food. While I saw that some other members on wine.com reviewed it as being good with pizza, what I tried it with was a meal of Mexican beef tamales smothered in cheddar cheese. What a perfect match. I am going to add another bottle of this Coppola 2000 Rosso to my next order and will make certain to try it with pizza as well.
A Customer - Florida
An elegant, smooth yet bold, soft but not sweet and a bottle that does not know the meaning of recorking!
A Customer - Cherry Hill, NJ
A nice, mild wine with good flavor. Good with a variety of light dishes and casual food. Great with pizza or appetizers.
