Notes from the Importer: Tai Rosso' is Venetian dialect for the red grape variety Grenache; Turchetta is an unusual native variety to the Veneto, thick-skinned and bluish-black in color, that used to be much more common around a century ago and now is quite rare. 'Doppio Gioco' means double game in Italian: referring to how half of this wine was vinified in a carbonic maceration method, while the other half was made like traditional red wine as well as on the stems, or whole-cluster. You can expect a woodsy, crunchy, medium-weight red wine here, with fun garnet and bluer-colored fruits making an appearance. A great selection to swap out for your loved one's routine, always-tastes-the-same grocery store Chianti.
