Westend Calabria Aglianico 2010

From the producers of maybe the only Saint Macaire bottled in Australia comes this juicy red from a grape variety that is usually found in Southern Italy but is beginning to make its mark in Australian vineyards.

Rich with toasty oak, cherry and fresh raspberry fruit.  This wine is so densely packed with fresh fruit with sticky, lip licking tannins that it is hard to resist, easy to drink- especially at this price.  Enjoy with home made pizza or moussaka.

Date: March 2013   Price:  $15   Value: $$$$   Drink:  Now
