To our taste, Alea Viva 2011 is a spectacular, knock-out wine. No one here really knows what Aleatico (the grape used) is ‘supposed’ to be like, and we certainly didn’t know how good it could be. If you think you like Pinot Noir with your turkey, try something new, and quite possibly better, at least as far as a food match goes. This has Pinot weight – light to medium body, with great depth of fruit like cherry kirsch, some attractive earthiness, and a lot of savory aspects. Plenty of intensity but relatively low alcohol – this is really a lovely bottle of wine. JW
