Mission Briefing

Codename:

Down to earth

Today’s Masseria del Fauno 2011 Annata Sangiovese is everything we’ve come to love in well-made Italian varietals. Simply put, there is something incredibly authentic and unpretentious about Italian wines that you don’t often find elsewhere.

Crafted in Puglia, which is located on the heel of the Italian boot, today’s wine is very reminiscent of the best offerings from Chianti. You will love how juicy red fruit and sweet terroir blend together to create one spectacular, easy drinking wine.

Please enjoy today’s wine with our heartiest recommendation. Abudanza!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark sanguine red with glints of ruby throughout the glass.

Smell:

A very complex nose, with deep red fruit of raspberry and wild strawberry blended with earthy notes of freshly tilled earth and sandalwood, trailed by dark spice hints of clove and anise. A subtle note of lavender carries through as well.

Taste:

Beautifully reminiscent of rustic Southern Italy, with a terroir and strong authenticity that’s impossible to fake. Juicy fruit flavors of mulberry, wild strawberry, and boysenberry are framed by toasty oak, black peppercorn, clove, anise, espresso bean, and pomegranate herbal black tea.

Finish:

A delightful wine to drink, with an earthy rusticity and pop of acidity that make it an absolute treat on its own or with your favorite Italian meal.

Pairing:

A homemade whole wheat pizza, with plenty of mozzarella and fresh Italian herbs and spices.
