Saladini Pilastri Vigna Monteprandone Rosso Piceno Superiore 2012, Italy

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $17. 
Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a red rim.

Nose of violets, blackberries, blueberry, plums, cherries, light vanilla, coke, licorice, leather, earth, black pepper and spices.

Medium bodied with high acidity and nice legs.

Tart on the palate with blueberries, cherries, raspberries, plums, strawberries, pomegranate, licorice, oak, dirt, coffee, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish, with soft tannins and black pepper.

A nice red wine, a little tart but not bitter. Interesting, with some complexity, but still not balanced.
Better with food rather than all by itself, like chicken or pork dishes.

Made with organic grapes.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
