We can barely restrain our excitement for this brand new wine from the best value producer in all of Italy. All of Elvio Tintero’s wines are spot on, delicious, and cheap! Delicious, classic Nebbiolo for 13 bucks? How can you beat it? With some fresh pasta, that’s how.
Chemins de Bassac VdP Cabernet Sauvignon Le Champs des Maures 2019
Bruno and Thama moved to France to escape the fast paced lifestyle they were living in Brazil. They took over Les Chemins de Bassac in 2019. This wine is from 15 years old vines on limestone and clay originating from ancient Quaternary alluvial terraces at around 100 m altitude. It has soft spices, dry tannins, and dark fruit: an easy-going Southern-style red for all occasions.
Opulent and ripe, this bottle hits all the classic Merlot notes. Grapes are hand harvested and fully destemmed before pressing, allowing the fruit to take center stage. Pair this with Duck Confit for a classic French pairing.
Food friendly, versatile and perfect with a slight chill. They're BBQ All-Stars.
