Wine of the Week

From vineyards first planted on hilltops in the heart of Tuscany in the late 1800s, third and fourth generation Sensi family members continue their winemaking tradition. Sangiovese is blended with 10 percent Canaiolo to produce this medium-bodied, well-balanced wine. A pleasant bouquet of ripe cherry with floral and spice notes precedes flavors tinged with berry, cherry and mineral character with earthy nuances and smooth tannins on the finish. Value-priced, this easy-drinking wine pairs well with bruschetta, pasta, sausages, roasted meats, poultry and game. Where to buy it: Sip Wine Market in Mid-City, DorignacÕs and Breaux Mart in River Ridge. Where to drink it: RalphÕs on the Park, Mr. JohnÕs Steak and Seafood and Red Maple on the West Bank.
