Monte Volpe Primo Rosso 2012
Our #4 Red Wine from our May 21, 2016 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
A blend of many old world varietals: Zinfandel, Barbera, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Syrah, Negroamaro and Nebbiolo; that were grown on the hillsides of the Ukiah Valley. This wine has a dark purple-garnet color, with fruity aromas and flavors of plums, blackberry jam, spice and earth with hints of toasty oak. Rich full flavors, ample tannins and balanced acidity seamlessly carry through to a long, complex finish. Enjoy this wine with grilled steaks, pasta with forest mushroom sauce and lamb chops with rosemary sauce.
Wine SpectatorRecalls the hearty, jammy field blends of yore, with aromas of wild berry and smoky herb leading to zesty flavors of black cherry, licorice and cinnamon spice. Zinfandel, Carignane, Syrah, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Petite Sirah and Pinotage. Drink now through 2019. 4,000 cases made.
