Alarico Terre Nobili di Lidia Matera, Organic red from Calabria, big, rich and creamy red, cassis and dark fruits, spice and vanilla, for fillet steak! This wine is the southern Italian sun captured in the glass, rich and full of dark fruits and spice.....complex, intense, persistent bouquet; lengthy finish with notes of wild red berries, cassis and hints of iris, cotugnata and eucalyptus followed by an enveloping and spicy taste with dense but not aggressive tannins. The 6 months oak ageing rounds out and softens this beautifully silky southern Italian red. This is seriously intense wine. In Calabria the summer temps reach 40 degrees and the fruit becomes super ripe as they green harvest to reduce the yields to Grand Cru Burgundy levels. If you like big Italian reds (Amarone for example) and steaks on a Saturday night, you must try this unique wine!
