Due Amore 2015
50% Tempranillo, 50% Dolcetto
Our special “Two Loves” blend explores new territory in this vintage, with equal contributions from the iconic Spanish varietal (Tempranillo), and the sleeper varietal of Italy’s Piemonte (Dolcetto). The aromas and flavors of this one are dominated by dark fruit, with a clove/cedar spice, and drying tannins on the finish. It will benefit from another 2-5 years of bottle age, but you can help this tightly-wound young wine open by decanting/aerating it. The youthful and reserved character of this wine call for a pairing with the subtle, deep flavors of roasted/braised red meats, or the savory and earthy flavors of autumn mushrooms.
