"Antipasto" means, literally, "before the meal". It can be a little nibble or two, a platter of salami and cheese, or an extravaganza of a dozen or more delicious foods. It can be modest and humble or utterly luxurious.

Italia Coppola's Braciole

Our Red Blend is dark and luscious, making it a worthy partner to Italia Coppola’s Braciole with Rich Tomato Sauce. Not only does this savory dish have a beautiful presentation, it tastes delicious with our wine’s dark, jammy berry flavors and its fragrant notes of violets, spices, and toasted oak.
