Rosso Puglia Casato D'Alojsa - 2009 $4.98 This wine was surprising, especially considering it's ultra low price. It's made from the Negroamaro grape. A light colored, transparent, red wine. You might be tempted to call this a rosé, but it's not that light in color. It's taste is fruity, spicy and bright. It's a wine destined for pizza or pasta or perhaps to serve with antipasto. It's brightness would go well with fish or with cheese and fruit. Although I prefer dark colored, more full bodied wines, this Casato was above par in my book. If it were aged a bit more it's fruitiness might develop into more sweetness.
