An extraordinary Super Tuscan at an affordable price, Mazzoni is a blend of 28 percent Merlot and 72 percent Sangiovese. After fermentation, the wine spent six months in large French oak barrels and six months in one-year-old French barriques, followed by two months bottle aging. In the glass, fragrant aromas of ripe red berries, plums, spices and earthy notes yield to a soft palate of bright red cherry and blackberry fruit with fine tannins, good acidity and a lingering finish. Drink it with veal, pizza, pasta and dishes with marinara sauce. Buy it at: Cork and Bottle and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Orleans Grapevine Wine Bar and Bistro, Harrah's New Orleans and Ristorante del Porto. — Brenda Maitland
