Wine Review: This scarlet colored red from Sicily opens with musty cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild cherry with notes of oak and red plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are sticky and linger for quite a while. This wine is food friendly and calls to be paired Stewart’s steak treats. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Description: an intense red color, Tancredi 2010 offers a pleasantly fruity bouquet, notes of red fruits, especially wild berries and plums, merge with balsamic and liquorice hints. The complex and elegant palate is characterized by noble and elegant tannins well balanced by a pleasant fragrance. Food & wine: it will find its best pairing with red grilled or oven-baked meats, game and aged cheeses.
