SOUTHPAW, By Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini
Southpaw is the result of the fruitful collaboration between Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, the former Lightweight Boxing Champion of the World and L’uva Bella Winery. Wine has become a passion for Ray and the mission of Southpaw is reflected in his desire: “to make the best possible wine at the most affordable price”, making it available to everyone.
WE ARE VERY PROUD to introduce Southpaw Cabernet Sauvignon, by Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Round One edition!
Ray’s passion for wine is very evident in his involvement and dedication to the Southpaw project. He is a perfect partner for L’uva Bella Winery, as we strive to make the best and most affordable wine available in the Mahoning Valley. Whether it is selecting the grapes, creating the label or choosing the name; Ray and his family are involved in every step of the process.
The name “Southpaw” derives from his ancestral Italian last name “Mancino”, meaning left-handed or “southpaw”. This particular edition, Round One, is the result of blending three vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon. The older vintages have been carefully selected by Ray and the L’uva Bella staff, and then proportionally blended to make Round One an elegant, balanced and unique style of Cabernet Sauvignon.
We truly hope you enjoy SOUTHPAW, by Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini and we look forward to adding additional varietals, or in our case “Rounds”, to the Southpaw label soon. In fact, we encourage you to contact L’uva Bella Winery and offer your feedback on Round One, or any suggestions you may have for our next varietal or style.
As always, PLEASE do not hesitate to contact L’uva Bella Winery if we can be of any further assistance regarding SOUTHPAW, or any of your wine concerns.
