Fratelli Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: The goal on this wine was a reasonably priced dry red that Al Pacino would drink with a plate of pasta. Chambourcin based with Tannat for structure, this wine has berry fruit, a smooth mid-palate and enough tannins to make this a hearty wine for the boys. Fratelli means 'brothers', and you can never have too many brothers.

Varietal Definition
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
Deeply colored and tannic minor grape grown in the Pyrenees region of France. One of four grapes whose wine is blended to make the full-bodied red wine known as "Madiran". The others are Bouchy, Courbu and Pinenc.
