While looking for something different, I came across this blend of Negroamaro (40%), Primitvo and Cabernet Sauvignon (30% each of the latter).  This wine is tannic and dry but if you just give it a little more thought/concentration in tasting it, you can get both leather and a little cocoa.  Color is a nice purple and the weight is light.  Not a bad wine for lighter fare.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
