2008 Vitiano Rosso 

Umbria, Italy / $10-$13 Retail

This blend of roughly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese was produced in Italy's Umbria region, just below Tuscany's southern border. The versatile, food-friendly bottling offers subtlety and substance. Aged in French barrels for three months, the wine exhibits aromas of ripe dark fruit with hints of spice and oak. On the palate, taste blackberry, cherry, a hint of anise, an attractive earthy character and a lingering finish. Enjoy it with pizza, meatballs, grilled meats, pasta dishes and cheeses. Buy it at: Whole Foods Markets and Dorignac's. Drink it at: Domenica. ­— Brenda Maitland
