My Rating 80 Points.
Ruby in color with a pink rim and medium intensity.
Fruity nose of plums, strawberries, smoke, raspberries, wood, licorice, earth, forest floor, green vegetables, graphite and black pepper.
Medium minus in body and smooth, with medium plus acidity and nice legs
Dry on the palate with plums, strawberries, cranberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, mint, earth, medicine notes, black tea, tobacco leaf, peppercorn and spices.
Short finish with fine grained tannins and tart cranberries.
This red blend from Italy is soft and gentle. Unbalanced, but has some interesting complexity that I didn’t expect. Fruity on the nose and earthy on the palate.
Not my usual drinker, but it did fit my guests better.
A good food wine, and I paired it with baked chicken and steamed vegetables.
Nicer with some air time (30 minutes).
12% alcohol by volume.
