2005 Odoardi "Savuto"

SKU #1062534

This is an outrageously delicious wine from Calabria (the "toe" of the boot that kicks Sicily) and is a kitchen sink blend of the indigionous Gagliopo, Maglioco and Greco Nero with a little Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blended in (and, I'm told, maybe another grape or two). It has loads of pretty cherry fruit, but also a crazy savory/umami nose and flavors that hint at bay leaf, fresh tilled earth, mushroom, tobacco leaf and sweet vermouth. It's soft on the palate with medium tannins, fresh acidity and just plain yuminess. Very food friendly and versitle and one of the screaming-ist deals in the store. CM, LA Italian Specialist

An odd-tasting and rather unpleasant wine, with no noticeable fruit to speak of, just overpowering flavors of musty wood, caraway seed, and kerosene.

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.
