Nourished by the ocean breezes and warm sun of Southern Italy, Villa Amoroso Sangiovese di Puglia bursts forth with earthy aromas, and flavors of red currant and raspberry. The wine’s flavors are even bolder after a 30-minute decant, which is just enough time to whip up your favorite tomato-based Italian dish.
