Racemi PietraLuna Negramaro del Selento 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Lavendar, cherry, pepper, and earthy notes on the nose

Youthful and fruity on the palate

Cherry, red plum, and lightly spiced on the finish

This is a youthful, fruity wine that will prove to be versatile with food and a nice option for a summer night when you really want a red wine. I can picture it with cold pasta salad, antipasti, or just about anything starchy.

Head off the beaten path for a bottle of Negramaro, a lesser know grape varietal that has typically finds its home in southern Italy. I paid $13 for the bottle at a gourmet cheese shop, but you'll likely find it closer to $10. Raise a glass!
