Pomodolce Croatina Fontanino 2011

$29.00 $24.00

A brilliant, bright ruby in the glass. The nose is reminiscent of blackberry and earth. Bright cherry and ripe red fruit on the palate make this a perfect match for stews and grilled meats. Fontanino is 100% Croatina - a grape that goes by many names (Bonarda in Oltrepo Pavese) is another rarity that is not often found yet is delicious from the area of Tortona. As the label suggests...Darker, deeper blue/black fruits shine through here but the wine is still balanced without a hint of heaviness.
