Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby/garnet red color. Concentrated nose, showing plum and berry character. On the palate full and round, with soft tannins and a long fruity, peppery finish. Paolo is a modern style winemaker, and his wines always have good dark colors, and elegant aromas.

Critical Acclaim

"A warm, inviting red, matching sweet cherry, berry and spice flavors, with refined tannins, a fleshy profile and a mouthwatering finish. Should develop well. Best from 2013 through 2022. 10,000 cases made."

This wine was great. As advertised, it was beautiful to look at and had a wonderful round flavor. It might not hold up against spicy Italian food, but is great alone and with red sauce pastas. I am ordering more right now.
