This is country wine made by a hometown boy who returned to his roots to make good. Matteo Baldin's winery in Bramaterra is small. Very small. In fact, he produces less than 450 cases of wine each year. But what he does produce is certainly getting noticed. Kròs is a super fun, juicy red wine that shows off just how zippy wines from this corner of northern Piedmont can be. It's not meant for long meditations or longwinded dissertations. This is a wine that is meant for long afternoons at the table, arguing and laughing with friends, breaking bread, passing bottles. Tangy cranberry and red cherry, a bit of mint, some stony minerality, and the warm grip of tannins - this is real wine, wine to share, wine to enjoy with a Bolognese, a radicchio salad or a pizza.
Food friendly, versatile and perfect with a slight chill. They're BBQ All-Stars.
