We had a very nice rolled leg of lamb this weekend, and there were quite a few leftovers. We had gyros this evening which were outstanding, and we served this great wine along side.
Dogajolo is a wine from Tuscany. Actually, Greve in Chianti, Italy. We spent a week near this town in 2001 and enjoyed the wines a lot. Bottled by Carpineto, this wine is made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the hillside vineyards of Tuscany. The label says it all..."fruity flavors with hints of berries, coffee, vanilla and spice, matched with a supple tannin structure and a long finish." It is a very "jammy" wine and would do wonders to a tomato dish such as a great homemade pizza. It is a very typical wine of the Tuscan region and is known as a "Super Tuscan". Super Tuscan means that the wine is a blend of grapes. This wine is from 2008 and cost less than $10.
