By Jingo 2010 Nero Rosso

A gourmet pizza went down very well accompanied by this cheerful dark and spicy cherry velvet bomb. It's a blend of montepulciano and zinfandel from the Adelaide Hills and grenache from a vineyard above a nudists' beach in McLaren Vale, so could have ended up anything from a disaster to triumph. Judging by my empty bottle, it ended up very much on the right side of the ledger with ripeness and richness from dark berry and currant flavours (chocolate notes also develop when its been open for a while). This is a wine with flourish and dash - I like it a lot. $30.
