Why do we love this wine?
Perfect with your favourite rich pasta, pizza, grilled meats or strong cheeses, l’Opera is a wine that will get your tastebuds singing! Opulent, plush and soft, this Italian red blend combines two of my favourite Italian varietals - sangiovese from Tuscany and primitivo from Puglia. Medium-bodied (so perfect for summer!), this wine pops with generous flavours of dark plums, blackberries and redcurrants. Hints of rustic savoury notes and cinnamon spice combined with good acid & tannin round it out to keep you sipping heartily, whether you’re enjoying an Aussie BBQ or an Italian feast! Buon Appetito! – Reino, Wine Dealer

Italian wines tend to stick to their geographical boundaries - but here’s one that breaks the rules and sources fruit from several regions - both north and south. Consider it a true taste of Italy. And after your first sip, you’ll be singing its praises, thinking you’re Pavarotti or one of the other three tenors. 

Like a good opera - this starts with a wave of deep baritone notes, finishing with a nice crescendo. Think plums, blackcurrants and maraschino cherries, lifting the tempo and intensity with violet and spicy / savoury high notes. And of course - there’s that traditional line of Italian acidity and tannin to give it some grunt. With that structure in mind, of course it can handle Italy’s cuisine; richly textured tomato-based sauces, bistecca alla fiorentina (big thick steak on the T-bone), or your favourite wood-fired pizza. Or even a simple chunk of parmesan. Splash it around. Get some air into it and enjoy.
