This is a bloody, irony, feral sort of wine that calls out for a nice cut of red meat. Its stretchy tannins give just enough grip to allow it to handle deliciously fatty cuts. I would opt for freshly butchered red meats as the intensity of wet- or dry-aged steaks easily could overpower this elegant and earthy wine. The kicking lift on the finish cleans the palate and creates a thirst for another sip. It's hard not to delight in the baked red plum and fresh cigar wrapper notes on the lingering finish! The noble Sangiovese Grosso leads in flavors and structure here and is accompanied by 25% Colorino.
