Wine of the Day: Monrosso Tuscan Red Blend

From the land of rolling hillsides and endless sunshine, Italy’s Castello di Monsanto crafts traditional Tuscan wines from classic varieties with a modern, elegant twist. These wines include the Tuscan region’s beloved Sangiovese for their Chianti Classico wines, and beautiful blends of International and Italian varieties, as displayed in their Monrosso Tuscan Red Blend ($16).  A spicy, peppery, savory Syrah dominant blend reveals a balance of freshness with tannin, highlighting red fruit, woody herb, purple flowers, and a bit of balsamic on the finish. A perfect wine to pair with grilled beef or lamb, or roasted pork belly.
