Wow, its hard to find wine that combines so many rich, exhuberant flavors with such great value. This wine will blow away most Cabernets and Merlots in its price range. From vines planted over 30 years ago with traditional Italian varieties (Negroamaro and Malvasia), this darkly colored wine has a very elegant bouquet of tobacco and licorice. On the palate, the wine is rich and full bodied with notes of ripened red berries, anise and licorice. Recommended with roasted lamb and smoked cheese.
"...exhibits a distinctive earthy nose of creosote, scorched earth, pepper, spice, black cherries and licorice...with abundant glycerin, power and richness..."
