Ciacci ‘Ateo’ Rosso 2011
This is an estate grown classic! Ateo is a nontraditional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend that hails from Tuscany. At first sip, this red Italian blend has a bold fruit and herbal note, followed with a mild spicy finish that lingers in a good way. One may even say it is reminiscent of a Super Tuscan. This wine has the full body flavor and balance that everyone can enjoy. While I paired it with skillet lasagna, I can imagine this wine pairing vary well with any red meat or your favorite pasta dish. The bold flavors paired elegantly with this rich dish.
