With undercurrents of dark cherry, red currants, and plum, it's hard to find this wine anything but succulent. Take the night off and relax by a fire and let the aroma of cherry and light oak take you to that secluded cabin for a romantic night with your other half, or with that juicy book you have been trying to finish.
This Super Tuscan-style blend is composed of 60% Sangiovese, 15% Petite Sirah, 15% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pair this red blend with a saucy Italian dish such as lasagna, or pasta with creamy carbonara sauce.
