All of the major Italian Red Wine varietals are served in our restaurant are unique both in flavor and aroma; the best Italy will ever serve. It is interesting to note that red wines are a classification of wine made from typically dark-colored (black) grape varieties. The actual color of these wines can range from intense violet, typical of young wines to brick red for mature and brown for mature red wines.
