The perfect everyday bottle, this is a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese along with the native Roman grape, Cesanese. This would be perfect alongside any red sauce pasta. The best would be to pair it with a bucatini all'amatriciana for a true taste of Rome.

Sangiovese has shown itself in recent years to be an excellent complement to Cabernet Sauvignon in red Italian blends; this grape duo forms the basis of many of the...
