Monte Volpe Primo Rosso 2014

Petite in the name probably refers to the size of its berries. Small berries have high skin to juice ratio which produce wines that are big, flavourful and tannic. Often dark and brooding wine with black pepper in the nose and lots of fruit, particularly plum and blackberries, in the mouth Petite Sirah displaying a rounder, brighter impression than Syrah. Though it doesn't have the prestige of Syrah, I find it very engaging and am rarely disappointed.

Food Pairings

Rich meat dishes like stews and braises of lamb, oxtails and such. Cured meats, sausages, grilled steaks and burgers. Lasagna.
