PRICE ON 4/21/2015: $8.99

Winemaker's Notes:

The Tomasello American Claret is a semi-dry red wine made from a blend of French hybrid grapes; specifically, Landot Noir and DeChaunac grapes. Slightly fruit in character and with about 3% residual sugar. A pleasant alternative to dry reds.

About Tomasello Winery:

Tomasello Winery is a small third-generation family Winery founded in 1933. Currently, the Winery produces over thirty different wines from grapes it grows on seventy acres. Its traditional wines include an Atlantic County Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin and Villard Noir as well as Never Oak Chardonnay to name a few. These Regional wines have garnered a number of awards and medals and are currently available in selected markets.

The Winery is perhaps best known, however, for the ”Tomasello Fruit Wine Portfolio”, a line of 100% naturally fermented fruit wines (Red Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cranberry and Cherry) which are sold throughout the US and exported to a number of foreign countries. These wines are intense in their fruit character and are used as dessert wines, reduced in the sauté pan for entrée sauces, incorporated into baking recipes, in mixed drink concoctions and in kirs with sparkling wines.
