Merlot. Fontana Candida 2011

Member Review by AdamJefferson:

I stumbled onto this bottle--a 2005 for $10--in a grocery store and bought it because I drank a different merlot from Fontana Candida a few months ago and liked it. This wine is from the Lazio province of Italy, is not particularly fragrant, but has an interesting earthy flavor that finishes spicy. I haven't tasted many like it for near the price; a great value. A fine pairing for pastas dressed with red sauce. I'm planning to have a bottle with a really great meatloaf soon.

Fontana Candida:
Fontana Candida is a popular wine brand based in Rome, Italy, best known for their Frascati wines produced in the nearby hills of Lazio. The winery was founded in 1958 and has been producing Frascati (a dry, light, refreshing wine with floral aromatics) since then. Eventually the business expanded to include Pinot Grigio from the Veneto and Orvieto from Umbria.
