2011 Punta Crena "Cruvin" Rosso

SKU #1113737

This is yet another wine that I discovered and fell in love with while the buyer at Pizzeria Mozza. This vintage is even more exciting. Imagine all the bouncy, bright red fruit of a Beaujolais with the spice and white pepper of a Southern Rhone and the elegance and "prettiness" of a well made Oregon Pinot or village level Red Burgundy. This has it all. An amazing wine for the price, it's a must try. And it's got a cool little fox on the label! (Chirs Miller, K&L Italian Specialist)

It seems to be a never ending parade of "what kind of grape is that"? Crovino? And yes they are they only producers who make one... BUt thank GOD they do! The wine has a great fleshy richness on the palate without being over ripe. A little bigger than a CRU Beaujolais, a little softer than Nebbiolo, and 100% delicious.
Drink from 2013 to 2015

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world.

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.
