Food Pairings for Benessere St. Helena Estate
"Sorridente" means smile in Italian, and it is our hope that this delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Aglianico will make your day a little brighter and cause you to smile. This wine is densely hued and is redolent of cherries, plums, allspice and cocoa powder. The bouquet is loaded with fruit-perfume and vanilla. Decanting will help release the aromatics and allow the palate to develop more rapidly. The mouthfeel is silky-smooth on entry, with substantial fruit, soft-but-firm tannins and a definitive "Italian" . Pair this wine with Veal shank, New York steaks, and Pork tenderloin. Alternatively, it will pair deliciously with pastas with Portobello mushrooms and marinara sauces. It will improve with 3-7 years of bottle age. Sugar: 0.0
