Organic Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno, 2009

We had a meat & pasta dish last week where I wanted to pair it with a nice Italian red.  This organic selection from Saladini Pilastri, which we picked up at Total Wine for less than $10 a bottle, complimented the spicy sauce quite nicely.  The Piceno region is on the "calve" of the Italian boot peninsula, as you can see from the map in the lower right.  this wine did not disappoint.

Organic wines often have a negative reputation that precedes them with many wine snobs.  To me, when I am looking for a tasty, inexpensive, healthy wine to compliment the food served in my home, I am not dissuaded or put-off by an organic label, and instead, will always give it a try.  Saladini Pilastri did not disappoint.  This will not be our last bottle.
