Virginia Pour House Notes:
 This 2010 blend titled “trentatre” or “33” consists of 33.3% equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Montepulciano. The grapes are harvested from the Rocca Family’s vineyard in the Apulia region of Southern Italy (the Southeast portion of the boot near the heel facing the Adriatic Sea). I randomly selected this wine at Trader Joe’s one evening because I was intrigued by the blend and the price point. I was completely caught off guard, and overwhelmed by the depth and soft nature that was presented to my senses. The nose was teased with aromas of ashed wood, mocha, espresso bean, licorice, and black currants in layers. While along the front of the palate, this young wine was greeted by dark plum, espresso, and mocha adding soft plush tannins and a smooth rounded finish. While showing a light to medium bodied structure, this wine is layered and still shows depth while not overwhelmingly bold. It is great and easy to sip or pair with pretty much any meal after a stressful day.
