Tenuta San Francesco
This is a red wine from the Tramonti sub zone of the AMALFI COAST DOC appellation of Campania ( see my blog on the visit to this beautiful area).
It is a blend of the Tintore grape ( indigenous to this area only) and to Piedirosso. The wine is a deep ruby red with purple highlights. It has a medium low viscosity (12.5% abv). It presents a very inviting nose with red fruits such as cherries and raspberries and secondary aromas of tobacco and wet leaves. On the palate is the confirmation of the nose with a medium body, a soft and enjoyable tannins and a perfect acidity. All together the components are very well balanced , making this a truly enjoyable wine especially when paired with pasta with red sauce of any kind and simple not overpowering meat. PM:92
