Mission Briefing

Codename:

Vieni con me!

Late last year we featured a monumentally great Gary’s Vineyard Pinot Noir from Pelerin Winey. The wine was a smash hit and our Operatives bought up every last case that we had. Today’s Pelerin 2010 Mesa Del Sol Vineyard Sangiovese proves that a great winemaker doesn’t need to buy elite-level fruit (like Gary’s Pinot grapes) to make an amazing wine.

Today’s Sangiovese is a beautifully balanced wine that is loaded with perfect proportions of fruit, earth and spice. This wine is beautifully balanced, delicious and so very food friendly. Enjoy it with nearly any Italian cuisine.

Ciao!
