2018 Ampeleia Costa Toscana Unlitro - Tuscany, Italy
A blend of Alicante Nero (aka Grenache) and Carignano, Unlitro is a real thirst quencher. It is a fresh, medium-bodied red loaded with ripe dried cherry fruit flavors. Aged for 6 months in cement tanks to reveal clean crushed flowers, blend with herbs and licorice that hint of a more delicate character. Pairs great with tuna tartare and arugula, scallop and shrimp over linguine, a beef carpaccio with Parmigiano or a grilled chicken salad with dried fruit. Luckily, it comes in a 1 liter bottle!
