Pino Vino VI is an exclusive
bottling of Sangiovese featuring rescued English Bulldog named Munson from
Winston-Salem, NC. Each year, Raffaldini Vineyards pays tribute to all rescue
animals by crafting Pino Vino, named for the Raffaldini family dog, Pino, a
rescued husky-shepherd mix.
Made in the modern “Super
Tuscan" style, this Sangiovese-based wine is full-bodied with ruby red
color and exceptional clarity. The nose
reveals succulent black cherry fruit while strawberry and red fruit flavors
round out the palate. A touch of Petit Verdot heightens the fruit aroma that
balances a refreshing acidity. Pairs well with prosciutto, grilled vegetables
with olive oil and garlic, wild game, mozzarella or cheddar cheeses, or drink
alongside your “best friend.”
As with all previous vintages of Pino Vino, a portion of the proceeds from Pino Vino VI Sales benefit local animal shelters and organizations.
Food Pairing: Prosciutto, grilled vegetables with olive oil and garlic, wild game, Mozzarella or cheddar cheeses.
Type of Wine: Medium bodied red with high acidity and moderate tannins.
Sangiovese roughly translates from Latin as " Sanguis Jovis” or
“Blood of Jove". Jove was the Supreme God in Roman mythology. It is the
principal grape grown in the Tuscany region of Italy. Three clones of
Sangiovese are the most sought after. The first clone, Sangioveto or
Grosso is used for Chianti. The second clone, Brunello is used to make
Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino and the third Prugnolo, for Vino
Nobile di Montepulciano wines.
