at an altitude of about 450 meters above sea level. With an aging regimen consisting of 3 months spent in stainless steel, Seiano really does showcase its area of origin, its terroir, without oak influence. Paolo and Noemia D'Amico started in 1985-- Paolo hails from a long tradition of ship-owning (three generations) and recalls time as a child walking through the family cellar; Noemia was born in Rio de Janeiro, of Portuguese origin, from the city of Porto, from where her grandparents brought their historical wine tradition to Brazil when they arrived. With wine in their 'roots' (as it were), their company was born.

Mulberry and pomegranate, dried strawberries, bramble, violets, tea and a touch of the regionally classic tomato leaf make for a beautiful nose, with the dried fruits leading the charge. Upon tasting, dried cherries and mixed red fruits meld with rose petal, earthy spice and a pinch of black tea. The dried fruits are quite elegant and stand out in harmony with the lush, forward tannins and brisk acidity that keep the mouthfeel lively, leading to a lengthy, resounding finish. This is perfect with lightly structured first courses, non-spiced red and white meats. And did we mention the value? This wine delivers way more juice than its price might indicate-- stunning value.

And speaking of the sense of place mentioned in the first paragraph, we definitely had a "...you're there" feeling when tasting this wine. It's like visiting the local osteria where they proudly pour their favorite red grown in the hillside vineyards above their town, wanting to show you, via the wine glass, just how beautiful it was to live there and how glad they were to share.
