Mezza Luna Red

May 10, 2011

I recently tried my 1st bottle of Vintners Reserve Mezza Luna Red. It’s a gorgeous red wine that is a 3 out of 5 on the ‘body rating’. I was really expecting a red wine with this full of a body to be really strong on the palate but it’s not… It has wonderful, smooth tannins that allow really allow the fruit notes to shine through.

This beautiful wine is a twice Silver Medal Winner at the Winemaker Magazine International Amateur Wine Competition and rightly so in my opinion. I would have given it a gold : )

I pared it with a garlic mushroom pork tenderloin and it did so perfectly. Mezza Luna Red will also be wonderful with any red meats done on the grill this summer- it’s a great barbeque wine!

Mezza Lune Red is very versatile- a great starter wine for someone who is trying a red for the 1st time or a great wine for the experienced red wine drinker. Also try the Selection Luna Rossa wine kit- Mezza Luna Red’s big brother.
