Marina Cvetic S. Martino Rosso 2010 Reviewed

If you’re looking for a deep rich and dark fruity red, the Masciarelli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Marina Cvetic S. Martino Rosso 2010 will not disappoint you.  Full of deep blackberry and blueberry flavors, this Italian red wine is going to pair perfectly with chocolates and dessert.  Since it’s superbowl sunday, we’re making shortribs and taking a risk by using this wine as the base.  After pouring a glass and seeing the dark purple colors, I had to drink it and hope they left enough for dessert.  Thank god we do have enough for two glasses left.
Masciarelli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Marina Cvetic S. Martino Rosso 2010

This wine goes down incredibly easy and leaves you craving another sip.  I have a box of chocolates my friend just gave to me with salts, toffees and a ton of amazing flavors inside.  This is the perfect wine to complement these and make them even better.  If you haven’t ever done a wine and chocolate pairing, you really don’t know what you’re missing.  The first time I ever did one was at the Jamie Sloan tasting room in Santa Barbara and it actually made me see how specific foods and flavors bring out wines, and how wines can really alter the flavors of foods.

Our short ribs are being brased with red onion instead of yellow or white and we have a couple of sweeter flavors in them.  Because of this the Masciarelli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Marina Cvetic S. Martino Rosso 2010 is going to be an amazing addition to the meal.  We’ll have the chocolates with dessert and some other fun flavors which will help to complement this delicious red Italian wine perfectly.

If you’re looking for a new Italian red wine and are serving anything with dark chocolate or a nice medium weighted meal, this is the perfect wine for you to serve with the meal.  The nice part is that if someone keeps the glass until dessert, it will be perfect with ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolates and a ton of other dark and rich flavors.  This wine is an awesome find.  Below are two shots of the label so you can find it as well.  If you’ve had it before, leave a comment below and let us know what you think.
