2022 Tenuta Il Nespolo 'Vino da Sete' 1L, Piedmont, Italy
The vineyards are composed of calcareous-clay soils that grow chalky-white in the hottest months of summer. Vineyards used in this blend are planted on slopes with a partly northern exposure that are slightly cooler, producing grapes with less structure and sugar that are perfect for making an easy-drinking, refreshing wine.
“Vino da Sete” literally means “wine for thirst,” or as the French say, a “vin de soif.” An easy-going wine, this fruity, crunchy red features a medium-ruby color with violet hints. Aromas of red fruits, strawberry, currant, and a touch of fresh leather blend on the palate, smooth with racy acidity to work well with food. It is ideal with a chill for a summer aperitif, barbecue with friends, or pizza night. Recommended to serve with a bit of a chill.
