Igreco Catà Rosso Calabria 2007

Ever tried Gaglioppo?  Neither had I until I uncorked a bottle of Igreco Catà Rosso  Calabria 2007 last week.  The Gaglioppo grape is predominantly grown in southern Italy and generally benefits from a little time in the bottle.  Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised when I took my first sip!

Cata

Tasting Notes

This wine opens with a bouquet of red berries and spice.  The palate features bright, red fruit, black pepper, sweet tannins, and a lingering finish.  If you are looking for a delicious, dinner conversation piece, definitely bring along a bottle of iGreco!  ($15, 14% alcohol)

My Wine Rating – B+

Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with pizza, pasta with red sauce, or grilled meats.
