Why are Italian wines so popular? This southern Italian red has all the muscle of sun-ripened fruit with the balancing acidity from wine's style: perfect for Mafioso weddings and pizza nights. A blend of 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera grapes. Plenty of black raspberries here along with some notes of opulently textured cherries and spiced vanilla. Robust and layered with a nice finish.

Negroamaro Malvasia Nera food pairings: sichuan beef, pasta in tomato sauce, veal scallopini, lasagna, pizza, pesto sauce.
