Another good pizza wine for just $5.99 from Trader Joe’s.
From the bottle:
This red wine shows intense blackberry and cherry notes harmoniously exalted by a light spicy background. Smooth and velvety with a firm backbone. Perfect at 18° with red meat, ham, and mature cheeses.
Harmoniously exalted? I don’t know about that but this was pretty good, with the notes of blackberry definitely coming through. This was our first Anglianico and I’ll definitely be looking for more. I think this compares favorably with the Archeo Nero d’Avola when pairing with a pizza, but we both thought this wine was slightly better on it’s own.
