Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark and slightly opaque, with dark garnet hues at its heart, and purple edging.

Smell:

Dusty leather, dark plum, rolling tobacco, briar patch, resin, underripe blackberry and dark toast.

Taste:

Big ripe plum, smoky dark cherry, underripe blackberry, leather, tobacco leaf, black pepper and toasted ansie seed.

Finish:

Big chewy tannins grab at the edges of your palate, holding on to tart fruit, spice and earthen components.

Pairing:

Pair with…. your favorite PIZZA, of course! We also think that this wine would be smashing with a fully loaded grilled burger with grilled onions.

What the Winery Says

In gathering our pizza wine “research,” there was really no resounding answer of what wine would make the perfect companion to pizza. What would be the best choice? Why not travel to Southern Italy, the birthplace of modern pizza. It was there that we found a producer in Puglia, the boot heel of Italy. This winery specialized in growing grapes indigenous to Italy like Primitivo and Negroamaro. We started experimenting with the grapes and after “crushing success,” we anxiously flew our wine to the States. After numerous taste tests we finally decided on our very own special blend.

We hope that you enjoy Brick Oven Red - The Perfect Pizza Companion with bright, intense and red ruby looks and flavors of red plums, bright cherry and leather.

Composition
30% Primitivo, 40% Negroamaro and 30% Malvasia Nera

About the Winery

What’s for dinner? Pizza: fast, easy, loved by virtually everyone. A true American staple borrowed from the Italians has become our ultimate quick fix for dinner. Pair it with a soda and you’re good “to go,” pair it with a glass of wine and you’ve got “gourmet to go.” But going gourmet with a great tasting bottle of wine doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.

A few years ago, the owner of Serendipity Wine Imports, a boutique wine importing company and himself a pizza connoisseur dreamed of the day he could market his own blend of pizza wine. He wanted a wine made with the consumer as the main focus, to help them take the guesswork out of what wine will pair well with pizza.
