It’s official. The holiday season is in full swing! Hopefully those of you who celebrate, had a great Thanksgiving. Did anyone brave the craziness and try their hand at some Black Friday shopping? I am more of a Cyber Monday gal. That way I can shop from the comfort of my sofa. All right. Enough chatter—onto the wine!
David’s pick this week is an Italian wine that he describes as “sick” (which is a very high compliment coming from our sommelier!). The wine is the Caprandole, Rosso Toscana 2008. It is a red blend of the very popular Sangiovese and the much rarer Foglia Tonda grapes. The wine costs about $17 a bottle. For those of you who typically look for an exciting label–don’t let this one’s turn you off! It is a much more exciting wine than you may expect.
