Europe Reds Case
Your Europe Reds Case includes two bottles each of
Albarrada Red (Portugal)
Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.
Val di Botte Sangiovese IGT (Italy)
With unlimited coastal access, warm Southern Italian sun, and 24-hour cool breezes, the Puglia wine region produces balanced, fruity grapes which match the local, tomato-rich food. If you want an earthy red to go with your favorite pizza or pasta, Val di Botte Sangiovese Puglia is what you’re looking for, especially if you decant it for half an hour to let the flavors of red currant and raspberry really open up.

Le Parlement Bordeaux Rouge (France)
Perfectly balanced 2014 Le Parlement Bordeaux Rouge draws its savory and complex character from the soil, climate, and time-tested traditions that make up Bordeaux’s inimitable terroir. This supple, smooth-drinking red is vivid in the glass, and thrills the palate with flavors of black cherry and currant, hints of cedar, silky tannins, and a well-rounded finish. Made from a thoughtful blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc.
Sorensina Sangiovese (Italy)
Puglia, the region on the "heel of the boot" in Italy, is famous around the world over for its Sangiovese wine. Known to be bigger in color and flavor than the wine from neighboring Tuscany, this elegant and enthusiastic red wine has bold cherry and strawberry fruits mixed with plum and a hint of fig. It’s herbaceous, with hints of smoke, earth, and tobacco, and is a delight to drink. Enjoy with some good Italian food and great friends.
