2015 Nardelli Appassimento Edizione Vino Rosso

Bold, dark and unflinching — these are the words to describe the experience of tasting this unforgettable Italian red blend. The wine spent up to a year in barrel, with the oak providing a spicy structure to the extracted flavors of blackberry jam, vanilla bean and cherry preserves. The ripe fruit and acidity extend to the warm, lingering finish, leaving you with a truly memorable drinking experience. Enhance the flavors with some grilled meat and good company.
