Rosso Cova translates to brooding red, referring to the deep dark colour of wine produced from Montepulciano grapes. As a Mediterranean variety, it loves life in McLaren Vale. We fondly call it "Monte" for short as we prefer a mouthful of wine to one of syllables.
And what a mouthful this is: plump, juicy Boysenberry fruit, big Chewy Tannins and a dash of Oregano thrown in. Begs for a big bowl of fat pasta with braised meat. Get your fork out!
"I'd rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size zero" - Sophie Loren
