With a medium body in the glass, the first thing you'll notice when you smell this wine is the spice. White pepper and celery salt intermingle with ripe cherry aromas. Once deep (but not too deep) inside your mouth, flavors of wild cherries and blackberries wash over your tongue with a satiny texture and reveal notes of oak, earth, and...like...Chicago-style hot dogs...c'mon, that's sexy. The finish lingers, leaving you with a desire for more with every sip. Softcore is satisfying on its own, but extremely versatile when it comes to food. It pairs well with everything from risotto, to rare chateaubriand, chocolate truffles...and Chicago-style hot dogs. Honestly, we've loved slightly chilling the wine.
Up first is Barbera, one of the most acidic red grapes on the track, so we are definitely making a pit stop for food. Second, Nero D'Avola is a lesser-known full-bodied Sicilian grape variety comprised of bold fruit-driven flavors; in this race, we're getting tons of black cherry. Third, Montepulciano may be Italy’s second most planted grape, but many folks have never even heard of it. It remains a rarity in California despite the climate being perfect to grow the perfect grapes for this beautiful, big, fruity wine. Last, but certainly not least, Bianchetta Trevigiana is a light, crisp, and juicy white grape with delicate acidity to round it all out. Together, these grapes cross the finish line as a blend that is slick and easy drinkin’. We know you'll love it. All bets are on.
