  4. Gravello Val di Neto Rosso IGT

This is a "Super Calabrian" wine made from the indigenous Gaglioppo and international Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Gravello is a fantasy name, but "grave" in Italian means "serious" and "important," which is a reference to the complexity and sophistication of this wine.  The suffix of "-ello" makes this meaning a bit lighter, as the wine is accessible and drinking beautifully right now.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, Gravello is intensely aromatic with notes of blackberry, ripe cherry, coffee, and cassis.  On the palate, it is rich with velvety tannins and a persistent finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled game, Mornay sauces, Chateaubriand, and duxelles-stuffed filet mignon.
