Supreno, Sangiovese/Merlot, Puglia, Italia, 2008 is dark garnet red. The nose is filled with a spicy, cherry nose, more fruit forward and New World in style. The palate is filled with tart cherry; strawberry with some chocolate notes and has light tannins. The finish is medium. The blend of this wine is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. The Merlot softens the normally more acidic Sangiovese. This is a very food friendly wine that will go great with chicken off the grill and pork dishes.
