Why do we love this wine?

“I have such fond memories of this wine and this producer. I took the family over to Italy and we went to Chianti and stayed in this gorgeous little villa on a mountain and there’s a region nearby called Panzano. It has a butcher called the Mad Butcher of Panzano, and I wanted a ragout for the family but he didn’t have any ragout sort of meat so I just had to buy this T-bone and it took, like, an hour to hand mince it. Anyway. I remember drinking this wine with the ragout that I made in this little villa and it was like a storybook.” – Andre, Head Mofo

“This guy Michael Shmeltzer (owner and winemaker at Monte Bernardi), who’s actually American, was lovely and I had a great time trying his wines. This is called Retromarcia, meaning a throwback to old so he makes it in a traditional style.” 

“It’s sangiovese and it’s in big barrel format so the oak is really soft. He just makes it in this beautiful, soft, juicy style but it has such good fruit and it’s all dark cherries and beautiful hints of sour cherries that just give it this lift, as well as dark chocolates and spices. I’m really excited to be sharing this with you. So if you want to have a little bit of a taste, join me and I hope you enjoy it. Cheers.”
