It feels good to be number one baby! And Tavernello is Italy’s number one wine brand. Here’s a few more numbers to have a mull over – 27 co-operative wineries, 12000 wine growers, over 32000 hectares of vineyards (that’s 85% of the total area of NZ’s wine production!) and a whopping 9% of Italy’s total wine production!
Those are the eye watering numbers the Caviro wine group can boast. They began in 1966 in the heart of Emilia-Romagna and today Tavernello is their flagship brand, with over 7 million Italian households regularly whipping the tops off amazing value Italian red and white wines.
This is the Tavernello Organic Sangiovese (pronounced san-joe-vae-sae) – a medium bodied, soft, luscious, highly drinkable red that is the most planted variety in Italy.
Scoring 90/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “Medium-bodied red with a core of sweet fruit that is neatly balanced by fine, ripe tannins. Floral/violet, raspberry, vanilla and ripe cherry flavours. Charming wine that is ready for drinking. Offers value at this price. ($20)”
Sangiovese is a highly versatile red when it comes to food and wine matching – being a medium bodied, savory style makes it a great partner with anything from pizzas and pastas to cured meats and cheeses.
