2007 Col D'Orcia Spezieri Toscana Rosso



Toscana, Italy / $13-$18 Retail

This high-quality Super Tuscan is a harmonious blend of 40 percent Sangiovese and 20 percent each Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Ciliegiolo, a native Italian varietal. In the glass, the wine offers aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry, subtle spice and cedar notes that lead into soft, velvety fruit flavors of blackberry, cherry, hints of leather, appealing earthiness, silky tannins and a lingering aftertaste. Decant an hour before serving. Drink it with grilled meats, hearty pastas and stews, tomato-based dishes and pizza. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Market, Sidney's Wine Cellar, Schiro's Cafe and Bar and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Julie's Little India Kitchen at Schiro's Cafe and Bar and Assunta's. —Brenda Maitland
