While mylar pouches and cardboard are not as closely associated with unyielding form, these vessels provide the perfect protection for the three everlovin’ liters of Tuscan tipple inside. Unsurprisingly Chianti-like, this offering is medium bodied and filled with flavors of dark fruit, forest flowers, and bitter herbs. Salute! Serving Suggestion: Pork tenderloin w/ garlic & rosemary. Roasted potatoes, carrots, & radishes w/ scallions & dill.
