Natalie's Score: 90/100

From the Veneto wine region and famed producer Tommassi, Graticcio Appassionato (2014) is a full-bodied and balanced red wine with great acidity and length. "Graticcio" is the local name for the traditional bamboo racks where the grapes for this wine are laid down and dried in the open air after the harvest and before vinification to add body, flavour and depth to the wine. Fleshy ripe sweet black cherries on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, smooth Italian red wine. Pair with spicy sausages.

Food pairings: gourmet burgers, lamburgers, prime rib, lasagne, sausage.
