Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Italian reds, for the most part, aren’t meant to be sipped on the patio or enjoyed by a crackling fire. They’re made to complement food: hearty Italian food. Drinking them without the accompanying meal usually leads to two conclusions: tastes like a sour cherry, and too much acid.

Food and Drink Features
