About the wine

You're a sip away from singing "Vita Bella...."
  • Imagine walking through Rome – alive, bustling and proud, surprises around every cobblestoned corner. That's David's vision for La Strada, his rustic layered red inspired by a day in the life of a busy Italian street.

  • There's just not that much Primitivo, Montepulciano, Aglianico, Barbera, Teroldego or Sangiovese in California. An Italian blend like this from the states?! It's cah-razy (and rare!). It's been a dream of David's to make something as special as this – and YOU made it happen.

  • The first time David brought in samples of this 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
Life is too short to age this wine.

Serving advice
Only the usual government Parental Advisory Warning.

Food match
Most of the "I" foods: Italian pizza, Italian pasta, Italian antipasti
