Grab a rustic pizza from your favorite Pizzeria and a bottle of Rosso dei Monti and let the weekend begin!


Rosso dei Monti 2010 by the Napolini family of Umbria

Around $13

Immerse yourself into a glass of a harmoniously fragrant and juicy blend of Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Ciliegiolo, Merlot and Montepulciano di Abruzzo grapes that emerged from the vines planted in clay soils on the sunny hills in the Montfalco area of Umbria that has produced high quality grapes for centuries. Once picked and pressed, this beautiful blend is fermented and aged in stainless steel and concrete tanks and French and Slavonian oak casks and allowed to rest so that you can enjoy this wine at its absolute fullest potential.

From centuries of producing the highest quality grapes and then hand-harvesting at its perfect ripeness, a beautiful ruby red wine emerges with aromas and flavors of cherry and warm spices on the palate and nose finishing with a pleasant earthy pepperiness.

Italian Wines are meant to be enjoyed with food!

Just in time for the pleasant weather of spring, you will enjoy every drop of this wine with a rustic pizza with fresh tomatoes and basil or a selection your favorite Italian hard cheeses such as Parmigano-Reggiano, Asiago and Pecorino Toscano. Make a big bowl of Spicy Sausage and Rigatoni, pour a glass for you friends and they will love you even more!

In the mood for grilling? Pair this wine with a highly seasoned grilled steak or lamb chops as well as richly flavored Tennessee BBQ!  A match made in heaven!

Drink up and get ready for next Friday!
