If you're searching for tasty, great value Italian wines, then the Rubicone IGT region is a great place to start. Sangiovese has history here, going back to the 16th Century, but we only found this wine earlier this year.

We'd been busy tasting Italian wines of all styles before the cheerful, smooth, fruity nature of Viverello's red wines bowled us over. Where it proved to be refreshingly low alcohol for us (11.5% abv), we thought it'd be the perfect end-of-the-day relaxing Italian red wine for you and a great match for roast meats and mature cheese.

It's always nice when the price comes in at such an attractive level too. Take advantage of our wine hunting and stock up on this summer's red wine essential.

Star red wine we discovered at Vinitaly, the huge wine fair in Verona. Struck by its hints of spices and vanilla., we just had to get some in. If you love Sangiovese, we think you'll be smitten by a glassful of this full and harmonious Italian number.

The Producer

Casa Vinicola Poletti was established in 1928 by Aurelia Poletti on the outskirts of Imola. The company owns 50 hectares of vineyards in the Emilia Romagna region and produce 20 million litres of wine per year both from grapes they grow as well as from other selected growers. The natural ridge of the Vena del Gesso Romagnola is a wonderful sight, protruding from the horizon of the hills, giving a unique aspect to the landscape. And it’s just there, right in the heart of this spectacular landscape, that the vineyards can be found. The wines of Poletti tell the story of this historical region.


Making sure the grapes have just the right balance of fruit flavours and balancing acidity, they're harvested and transported into the winery as swiftly as possible. Once there, they're lightly chilled, to lock in those vibrant fruit flavours, before being gently pressed.

There's no oak involved here, just pristine Italian red grapes turned into a superbly quaffable red wine with flavours of red cherries and a slightly earthy character.

The Region

Emilia Romagna is a hilly region on the Northern peninsula of Italy where wine has been produced since the 7th century originally by the Etruscans. The most famous wine from this region is Lambrusco but wines are also made here the from Sangiovese and Trebbiano (also known as Ugni Blanc) grapes. Malvasia, Ortrugo, Barbera and Bonarda are also popular grape varieties grown here. In addition, international varieties like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are also made successfully here. Soils and climates here are diverse, with the influence of the Apennine mountains is a major factor in the climate and terrain.

Blackened Steak With Red Wine Jus

A good tender steak is unbeatable and chargrilling adds extra depth of flavour. Choose a red with medium to full body and a decent amount of tannin to soften the texture of the steak. A savoury Sangiovese such as Viverello Sangiovese from Rubicone is perfect.

Roast Pheasant with Lemon and Rosemary

This roast game bird is succulent and has a zip of acidity and herbiness from the lemon and rosemary seasoning. Choose straightforward, soft reds with good acidity that won't overpower the flavours of the meat and provide a mouthwatering quality to this food and wine match. Viverello Sangiovese from Rubicone is just perfect.

Mushroom Risotto with Caramelised Onions

The earthy flavours of mushrooms will benefit from a very slightly earthy wine. Sangiovese is known for having this characteristic and will match well with this rich savoury risotto. Viverello Sangiovese is a very good choice.
