La Carraia offers an Umbrian twist on a Tuscan classic: this supple wine is made from 100% Sangiovese, fermented in stainless steel and matured in French oak bfor two months to develop extra smoothness and richness. The resulting wine is a versatile, delicious value.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant ruby-red in color, aromas of ripe blackberries and black fruits develop into notes of strawberries and currants with subtle hints of mocha, tobacco, and sweet spice. On the palate, it is full and rich with soft tannins and lively acidity.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with barbecued meat, tomato sauces, pizza, and spicy soppressata.
