Located in Southern Tuscany, Val Delle Rose is one of the largest wineries in the region. Their 2018 Aurelio, something of a flagship wine, offers superb quality fruit - muted pomegranate, rhubarb, black cherry, blackberry, along with a judicious use of oak that brings out cedar notes. There are vague back notes of dusty cocoa. This is a nicely balanced wine that combines all the necessary elements of oak, fruit, tannin and acidity, making for a wine that would be very complementary for any number of foods. Comprised entirely of Merlot with the addition of 5% Cabernet Franc this is, like many Italian wines, gentle in its approach offering very mild tannins and a very gentle fruit, which is why it’s a terrific food wine. ORIGIN: Tuscany, Italy.  ALCOHOL: 14.5%
