2018 Rosso "Anthos" (Correggia, Matteo)
Matteo Correggia, Rosso "Anthos", Piemonte, Italy 2018100% Bracchetto BERRYISH AROMAS, PASTORAL VIBES, BRIGHT YET SOFT Before passing away too young, Matteo Corregia was a pioneer in his corner of the Piemonte, Roero. His widow continued has his vision, and this wine is a great example. Her “Anthos” cuvée is made from the Brachetto grape – only ever seen in the Piemonte and almost exclusively used in light, sweet, fizzy wines. This beautiful red, however, is dry, serious, and elegant. Simultaneously delicate and expansive, it strikes us as being both gentle and generous with its berryish intensity, soft tannin, and floral tones. Serving suggestions: Savory borscht w/ sour cream & shredded carrot. Holiday ham feast w/ breadcrumb casserole & cranberry sauce.
