Diavolessa (which means “she-devil” in Italian) isn’t a grape, it Tre Anelli’s name for a proprietary red blend. The 2010 Diavolessa consists of mostly Petite Sirah, along with some Mourvedre, Sangiovese and Tempranillo. Meticulously combined to bring out the best characteristics of each varietal, the wine is deeply colored with aromas of bright red fruits that lead to enticing flavors of black cherry, cola and black raspberry. This complex beauty evolves in the glass, so if you are patient enough to let it breathe you will be rewarded with hints of dark chocolate and espresso. Diavolessa’s balanced acidity and well integrated tannins make it incredibly food friendly. How about beef tenderloin with rosemary gorgonzola or pappardelle with lamb ragù? Or go with a tried and true local menu like Santa Maria style tri-tip topped with salsa fresca and pinquito beans.
