    “Il Sarone”. “Big Saro”. He goes by a few nicknames but his real name is Rosario and he’s the winemaker at Mondo del Vino, the producers of this great value red from Puglia in southern Italy.

    Negroamaro. Primitivo. Montepulciano. Nero d’Avola. All classic grape varieties in the Italian wine scene. “Il Sarone” was clearly having a problem deciding which grapes to use for the wine being named after him. So he used them all!

    Yep, “Big Saro” came up with a big blend of these varieties to craft this pretty unique and totally delicious Italian red.

    We’re told Rosario is a pretty typical Italian name. So it’s no surprise to know that Il Sarone goes with fairly typical Italian fare too – wood oven baked pizzas, pastas, hearty spag bols and platters with cold cuts like salami and  prosciutto. Buon Appetito!
