Rubicone, Emilia-Romagna, Italy
The tale of Villa Venti is a rather beautiful one. Winemakers, Mauro Giardini & Davide Castellucci, decided to leave their jobs in 2002 and devote themselves and their families to a lifestyle that would be closer to nature. For Mauro, this was an easy choice, he is nostalgic about his homeland and has always had a passion for wine and the Sangiovese grape. Today, they are producing some of the best wine that Emilia-Romagna has to offer. You will find a lovely bouquet of stewed plum, clove and red pepper in this wine as well as flavors of tart cherry, leather and rose petals unwinding on the tongue. This wine will fit in nicely with grilled lamb chops, stuffed shells or a nice Parmigiano-Reggiano.
