Poderi Dal Nespoli Nespolino Rosso Emilia-Romagna, Italy 2018Regular price $11.00
Now in its 4th generation (great-granddaughter) this winery began as a roadside attraction. A charming Osteria feeding sport fishermen on their way from the sea, and sending them home with a trunk-full of sangiovese.
Many upgrades later, and the introduction of barrel-aging, the Ravaioli family today makes fresh, juicy sangiovese from organically farmed vineyards. We get violets and cherries on the nose and palate, with medium tannins and a smooth finish.
Food Ideas: Spaghetti squash w/pork Bolognese, tuna poached in olive oil w/fennel mostarda, grilled bread salad (Panzanella)
