Because isn't that the whole point?
Napolini (or on this label Napo's) is a red blend of Sangionvese supported by Sagrantino, Ciliegiolo, Merlot, and Montepulciano from the area of Montefalco in Umbria. This is a warmer region that's more removed from the oceans influence and located south of Tuscany. Aroma: The Napo Umbria Rosso has a vivid fresh ripe cherry and raspberry that gets me right off. There's a warmth to the smell that makes me think of hearty dinners and cozy restaurants with exposed brick. Now, as I work at it, I'm also smelling dried red fruits and flowers. Taste: My favorite part of the Napo's taste is this hint of wood smoke and roasted meat on the finish. There's a lot of rich red fruit up front, but then that turns into a rustic spicy mid palate that transitions to wood smoke and dry tannin. I really want pizza, or some braised meat. This is a hearty red wine that's great for people that like rustic classic Italian reds. Once the Napo has some time to open up it drinks way better than it's price.View all products by Napolini
