Wine Cup 2015

Semi-sweet blend of Montepulciano and Dolcetto

Tasting Notes

The prominent Montepulciano in this red blend makes a bounding wine with loads of juicy black cherry, blackberry jam, along lively red cherry flavors from the Dolcetto and Sangiovese grapes. This blend of Italian wine grapes is definitely a fruit bomb. The Winecup has just enough sweetness to balance the firm tannins and to give it a velvety soft, toasty finish.
