Della Flora Sangiovese I.G.T. - (x2)
Sangiovese is Italy’s flagship red, with each region offering its own satisfying take on this savory red wine. Della Flora Sangiovese is on the lighter side, with flavors of red currant, raspberry, and earthy clay. It pairs perfectly with tomatoes, especially if you decant your wine for 30-45 minutes before enjoying—that’s just enough time to make a marinara from scratch.

This central Italian red boasts up-front flavors of raspberry and strawberry with hints of roasted pepper and fresh herbs. The finish is light to medium with a smooth tannin structure. Pour Val di Botte Toscana Rosso with your favorite tomato-based Italian dishes, especially if you open it early and let it breathe before drinking.
