2009 Fujanera "Arrocco" Nero di Troia

SKU #1060790

The Arrocco is loaded with boysenberry fruit, but it isn't like a bunch of blackberry jam, there is something more exotic, lilting, inviting and lingering, with a higher tone to it rather than just simple fruit. It smells of wildness subtly layered in behind. No wood aging, only stainless steel, yet on the palate the wine is luxuriant and supple, with power, depth and significant weight at only 13.5% alcohol. The finish is layered with spicy highlights and a smooth, balanced finish. I like drinking this wine. Arrocco is the Italian word for "castling," a move in chess, but the name is also a tribute to Rocco, the winemaker's father.

Another Greg St.Clair great find, this all-fruit boysenberry and currents) wine is opulent, striking, and high-profiled, offering a stunning fruity nose that carries over to a rich, deep, viscous, complex, flashy wine that lingers in the finish for the night. Anderson has told me that this, too, will be one of our house red Gems for the month. 13.5% ABV (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2015

I've been digging this wine since we first got it. It's got lovely fruit, great balance and goes perfectly with my deep fried Tofurky! Delicious!

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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
