Etty’s Wine Pick: Odoardi Savuto 2005

This awesome red blend which combines a host of obscure varieties indigenous to Calabria – the toe on Italy’s boot – is hyper earthy. Deep aromas and flavors of horse saddle leather, mushrooms, dirt (sounds weird but it’s amazing), tobacco, and red cherry yield a truly unique wine that is a pure expression of the soils on which it was grown. This is an OUTRAGEOUS value, you’d be silly not to try it! Pair with braised lamb shoulder with herbed quinoa salad or smoky lentil and chorizo soup.
