Foppiano Lot 96 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, robust blackberry and dark chocolate are the predominant aromatics with a touch of anise and white pepper. The fruity aromas follow on the tongue, commingled with full-bodied black cherry, blueberry, hints of dark toasted hazelnuts and sweet vanilla. The well-managed, even tannins produce a long, silky finish with luscious black fruits to the end. Pair this rich wine with grilled or roasted lamb chops, braised meats, dark chocolate desserts, or hearty, aged cheeses such as Asiago, Parmesan Reggiano or Gouda.

Savor this blend of Zin, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah with anything calling for an easy, full-bodied red wine. It's fruity and spicy, with berry-cherry flavors and a smooth, rich balance of acids and tannins.

What a blend! Including no fewer than seven different varietals, this red blend will please anyone looking for a bright, fruity wine to pair with grilled meats or spicy pasta dishes. Ruby red in color. The nose is packed with fruit that lasts through the finish and gives way to subtle spiciness and light tannins. The bottle also boasts a screwcap, making it perfect for dinner parties or outdoor adventures of any kind.

The blend in this wine avails you to an unctuous, food friendly experience. Sangiovese plays a big part in structure as well as a dynamic fruit component. Soft, ready to drink and very supple, LOT 96
