Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Hills of Tuscany

Contemassi Winery has the distinction of being our best-selling Italian winery of these last seven years. Their wines are always exceptional - and always value priced.

Today’s Contemassi 2007 Toscana Red Super Tuscan IGT is a wonderful summer wine that will pair beautifully with any Italian meal. Enjoy with everything from a rich meat sauce pasta to a fresh pasta Primavera. This classic super Tuscan from Contemassi goes with everything.

This Italian beauty is offered to you, today only, with our highest recommendation. Even better than the wonderful Contemassi Classico that graced our pages earlier this year, today’s Super Tuscan is certain to please any fan of great Italian wines.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Freshly pressed unfiltered cherry juice. Slightly opaque at the center, leading gradually to translucent edges.

Smell:

Intense and layered, with black cherry, blueberry, fennel, and subtle tutti-frutti.

Taste:

Flavor spreads from the center of the tongue outward. We found dried fruits, especially currant, cherry, and blackberry, along with tomato stem, briar patch, clove, subtle mushroom, and hard, cracked leather.

Finish:

Dry crushed velvet that gradually dries the entire palate.

Pairing:

Any Italian dish would be wonderful! We would recommend pasta bolognese or a veggie pizza with sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and bell peppers.
