Forget expectations of Spanish warmth and spice, this is country rustic. No sloppy, sweet kisses and softness – the feeling here is more gutsy Italian. The slightly rustic, down-to-earth character may also remind you of Ontario Cab Franc. Perfect for cutting the grease in steak, burgers and anything hearty.
