2007 Tenuta San Francesco Tramonti Rosso (Previously $22.99)

SKU #1058384

The Amalfi Coast is well known for its spectacular beauty. But not so much for its local wines. That should change, and it will, if this extremely quality conscious estate has anything to say about it! San Francesco’s vineyards extend over seven hectares situated along steep-sloped terraced lands, rising 300-500 meters above sea level and characterized by high density plantings of indigenous grape varietals. Of the seven hectares, four are planted with 100-year-old vines of tintore and piedirosso, along with additional plantings of aglianico. This spicy red is great with pasta and pizza, and can be chilled down and served with lustier seafood preparations like tuna or swordfish.

Yam versus wine, it's the ultimate throw down! It's the holidays, and what are the holidays without some yam dishes? Of course, the wine I have choosen is...Tramonti! This one is from a great producer called San Francesco. It gives a one-two punch to the yam. But no knock out here, just a beauitful dance of wine and food.

From the Amalfi coast, we have this great red blend, 40% Aglianico, 40% Tintore & 20% Piedirosso. This wine shows complexity with all its layers. Rich in body and texture, the wine evolves deeper and deeper in stages with every sip. Three sips tell the story. The first sip is full of white pepper and spice. The second sip shows deep, rich, ripe, black plum and following with the third sip that glides through the palate with smooth mocha and cocoa leaving the partaker wanting to explore the wine more and more.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
