100% Aleatico from Lazio (near Rome), Italy.andnbsp; Typically, Aleatico is vinified into dessert wine, but Andrea Occhipinti decided to make a dry red wine from vines planted on Elba Island in Lazio's Lake Bolzena.andnbsp; These ancient volcanic soils produce a highly aromatic and super ethereal wine that we can't seem to drink enough.andnbsp; Super spicy and dark fruits on the nose, and then high toned red fruits on the palate with lip-smacking acidity.andnbsp; Great light to medium bodied wine perfect for upcoming grill sessions.andnbsp; Given how warm it is in this area, you'd expect a big clunker red from Aleatico, but that is not the case. This is beautiful, balanced and so easy to chug drink.

Rose hips for days......bright, fresh, tangerine, wait.....this is a red wine? This is so pretty.....a classic beauty, like Blake Lively. Drink up.

Under ripened high acid fruit. Tart cranberries. High tannins. Good value and tastes of a heavy dose of frappato.
