This dynamic Italian blend pairs perfectly with our signature Braised Beef dish or any of our dry-aged steaks.

Locations I by Dave Phinney is one of the unique red wines offered at Rare Italian.

This wine represents a beautiful marriage between Northern and Southern Italian grapes.

Four grapes are featured in this blend, Negroamaro and Nero D’Avola from Puglia, Barbera from Piemonte, and a small percentage of Sangiovese from Toscana to balance the acidity.

This wine is aged 10 months in large oak barrels.

On the nose, you find aromas of vanilla and black licorice, after tasting you might find notes of black cherry, cinnamon, and fig.  While dry on the palate it’s medium-full body style makes it suitable for every level of Italian wine connoisseur.

Fun fact: Dave Phinney also produces Location wines from Germany, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand, Corsica, California, Oregon, Texas, and Washington state.
