About the wine

David's 90+ rated Italian-inspired red blend is finally back!
  • David's tantalizing top-rated red returns! This easy-drinking Italian-inspired red blend captures the excitement of a day in Rome, David says, and with so many endless layers of fruity finesse all we can say is – bellissimo!
  • It was David's dream to make this rare blend of Italian red varietals grown in California. Now he’s bringing it back for a third jaw-dropping vintage – all thanks to YOU.
  • The first time David brought in his blend to taste, he came prepared – with loaves of bread and oodles of cheese. Take it as a hint: This wine is made for a big ol' meal. "It's Italian – it loves company!"  David says. Buon appetito!

Best before
This wine will certainly age well.

Serving advice
I'm surprised how well it is tasting now and I'm sure it will also reward some patient cellar aging too.

Food match
Not a local food, but if you can make a Florentine steak, it would be well worth the effort.
