SHHHH! Don't tell anybody what this wine costs, just keep quiet and enjoy it, and let your friends think you spent a bundle. Who knows how the Giulianis can do it? What matters is that they know how to make wine. A lighter style of Châteauneuf, this is a pretty wine, supple instead of muscular, with fruit of sweet black plums, blackberries, and black currants with undertones of red fruit, smoke, pepper, and pleasant stewy notes. Let it garnish your Thanksgiving turkey or duck, Christmas ham, or everyday rack of lamb.
