Nemorino Rosso, 2012, Tuscany, Italy

15 Jan

DSC03200“Super Tuscan” is an unofficial term coined to describe lush, full-bodied, modern Italian wines that don’t play by the rules governing Tuscan appellations like Chianti. This one is 60% Syrah with equal parts Sangiovese and Merlot. Fruit-forward and rounded on the palate, making it a perfect cocktail-style wine, but with enough acidity to play well with dishes like peppery roast pork loin. $16
