Morellino di Scansano, 2010

5/5 $17.00

This may be one of the best red wines I have had in the entirety of my drinking years (legal or not). I say this not just because I loved drinking it so much, but also because it’s great to have in the warmer summer months, but could easily transition to heavier fair in colder weather. It’s a medium intensity dry red that is not super aggressive, and has an interesting freshness that makes you want to keep drinking (always a good thing, right?). It is also quite fruit-forward, specifically dark berries and plums, and not very spicy. This would go fabulously with Italian like pasta and meat sauce, eggplant Parmesan, or something like a roast duck with a cherry reduction. So the next time you are thinking of cooking a special meal, definitely consider getting a bottle of this to complement.

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
