2014 Rosso, Veneto "Scaia" Corvina (Sant'Antonio, Tenuta)
Tenuta Sant'Antonio, "Scaia" Rosso, Veneto, Italy 2014100% Corvina PLUM & RICH BLACK CHERRY, COCOA & FIVE SPICE, LIP-SMACKIN' FINISH Corvina, best known as the perennial headliner grape in the wines of Valpolicella, here shines in a solo role and layers its famously black fruit with lush autumnal spices, pink peppercorn, and freshly steeped black tea. Sumptuous and bold but consummately affable and easy to drink, this phenomenal value was farmed by the four Castagnedi brothers in the hills of Valpolicella after expanding their father's vineyards to more than twice their original acreage. This is the very definition of a "daily" red - a champion of quality and affordability with more than enough substance to keep us wanting more... and more. Serving Suggestion: Spicy Italian sausage (from Farmhand Foods, perhaps?) & penne pasta w/ a peppery vodka cream sauce.
