Villa Amoroso Toscana Rosso I.G.T. - Tuscany, Italy
There is something inherently special and charismatic about Tuscan wine. Some say this is instilled by the vine, while others are charmed by the balance and full-flavor. What wins us over is the wine’s proven food-friendliness. The contrast of tart cherry, plum, and strawberry flavors fuse with earthy notes of oregano, smoke, and tobacco, making it a wonderful dinner companion. Non-vintage Villa Amoroso Toscana Rosso hits every flavor note we expect, leaving us to want nothing else, except for maybe a few more bottles.

Made from a thoughtful blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc.
