Sangiovese - Feudo Di San Nicola
Sangiovese is the ubiquitous Italian red wine grape. Although it is famous for Chianti and Brunello, it produces great wines up and down the Italian peninsula.
Feudo San Nicola is a joint venture between the winemaking Biscardo and Tinazzi families from Verona. They couldn't pass up the opportunity to acquire a beautiful property in the Salento region of Puglia at the heel of the Italian boot. The generosity of the soil allowed them to produce a Sangiovese that is elegant and complex, yet friendly and very easy to drink. It is a deep ruby colored wine with fruity aromas like spiced black plum and rich, earthy strawberries. Easily approachable with lots of fresh, ripe dark cherry and red currant flavors before a balanced finish, this red is incredibly versatile when it comes to food pairing. Enjoy it on a blanket in the park while the sun is shining with sandwiches, charcuterie, and cheese, or after dark at the dinner table with braised chicken, pasta, grilled steak, and veal chops.
