The 2007 Rosso from Azienda Agricola Uccelliera is bright and fresh, with much the same flavor profile of its big brother, just younger and more supple. It's always great with a salumi platter, some good Pecorino or other sheep's milk cheese, a frittata from the garden or pasta dish. I'm thinking one with chicken liver sauce or some kind of ragu. It's a great burger wine too. And about as versatile a red as you can find.
