Brilliant ruby-red in color, aromas of ripe blackberries and black fruits develop into notes of strawberries and currants with subtle hints of mocha, tobacco, and sweet spice. On the palate, it is full and rich with soft tannins and lively acidity.
Pair this wine with barbecued meat, tomato sauces, pizza, and spicy soppressata.
"Bright ruby-red. Clean, fresh red berry and mineral aromas on the bright, enticing nose. Juicy and fresh in the mouth, with an almost crunchy quality to the red fruit and delicate mineral and herbal flavors. You can't ask for a better pizza and pasta wine than this bright, persistent number. Not quite complex enough to merit an outstanding score, but it's so remarkably juicy that I couldn't resist giving it 90 points."
