Review:

Wine Enthusiast 2008 Vintage- 92 pts! - Half Sangiovese and half Cabernet Sauvignon, the Bello Rosso marries immediate appeal with the structure for some additional years of aging. Boysenberry and vivid black-cherry flavors show excellent definition and penetration, and are highlighted with barrel accents of clove and sweet spices. Over many hours this wine continued to improve and expand. P.G

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Walla Walla Vintners Bello Rosso 06 - "the winery's "version of a super-Tuscan. Once again, half is old-vine Sagemoor cabernet sauvignon, half is sangiovese. Washington sangiovese is the most successful of the Italian varietals grown here, and this lovely blend, with its appealing softness, mixes dried herbs and spicy red fruit with hints of mushroom and olive." Seattle Times' Paul Gregutt

"...The deep color and smell of porcini mushrooms, sweet leather, Sicilian olives, roasted eggplant and black truffle makes this a divine wine. This wine will take you to Gubbio, Italy where you can enjoy bruschetta tartufo followed by tagliatelle with cream and saut?ed fresh porcini mushrooms topped with shavings of black truffle. Bravo! This is a limited edition wine and we only produced 247 cases, so get it while it lasts."
