[Merlot dell'Umbria] If you're grilling steak in the Florentine style (brushed with olive oil), select a wine from central Italy such as this merlot. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color and a big sweet nose that includes mocha, espresso roast, and loads of black cherry fruit.
This wine exhibits nuances of ripe fruit, earthiness, and tobacco with great length on the palate, firm tannins, and a fine, long finish. Although full-bodied and intensely flavored, it also has an ethereal sense of lightness.
Cuvees That Make The Most Of Comfort Food - One of the finest widely available proseccos in the marketplace, this fresh, lively sparkler, a blend of 95% prosecco and 5% chardonnay, exhibits notions of orange rind, brioche, and honeyed grapefruit. Light-bodied, effervescent, and packing plenty of flavor in its delicate personality.
Produced from the indigenous and little-known roscetto varietal, this white wine begins slowly and aromatically. Then it starts to build intensity in the mouth, revealing a tremendous, layered, honeyed character reminiscent of a southern Rhône blend of roussanne, viognier, and marsanne. Given its full body and intensity, you could even serve it as an accompaniment to hearty meat dishes. This noteworthy value represents a remarkable achievement for this estate.

Sangiovese Umbria IGT
This outstanding effort makes a mockery of many of the over-priced Sangioveses emerging from other areas of the world. A stunning value, it boasts a beautiful bouquet of sweet cherries, strawberries, bay leaf, spice, and blacker fruits. Full-bodied with superb length, good underlying acidity, and a beautiful texture...
It's a blend of merlot, sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, and a touch of aleatico. The dramatic ruby color is followed by a floral, kirsch-liqueur-like nose, fresh, lively strawberry and cherry flavors, and a zesty finish.
