Northern Italy Sun-dried Tomato and Italian Sausage Risotto featuring RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice
RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice has a naturally creamy texture, which makes it the perfect choice for risotto dishes and Merlot Wines
It appears as light ruby in color hinting at a medium bodied wine. On the nose you get black cherries with some slightly darker scents of dates and tobacco carrying it along. On the palate, this is a much more intense wine than the color indicates. The flavor of black cherries is brought forward with a bit of stone fruit. The tannins give the lingering impression of a slight spiciness being there. It has a long finish that just lingers and it would pair very nicely with something fresh off the grill like a marinated flank steak.
Scents of cedar and a bit of plastic (!). Medium body yet complex. Smoky berry flavor with a hint of a mocha finish.
Smooth, with fruity, cherry taste that isn't too sweet. Goes down smoothly.
Just had this wine with a plate of pot stickers. Yum!
