Oltrepo Pavese

Just a quick Sunday night post to say how much enjoyed my first taste ever of Oltrepo Pavese. Specifically, the 2006 Bruno Verdi Sangua di Guida Paradiso. It's a lightly fizzy, deeply colored red wine with 7% alcohol and a flavor profile not unlike barbera. Dark berry fruit, bitter chocolate, and just a beautiful, savory flavor that balanced the light sweetness perfectly. I could drink a lot of this. Highly recommended.
