#52 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Alta Luna Phases represents the finest selection of grapes from prime vineyard sites in the foothills of Italy's breathtaking Dolomite Alps. This elegant yet robust fusion of Merlot and native varieties Lagrein and Teroldego combines flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plum with distinctive spicy notes. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months, this vibrant red is smooth and beautifully balanced, with fine tannins and a lingering finish.
Smooth & Supple
This is delicious. Smooth and very easy to drink. Buy more than one.
Earth & Spicy
Very impressed with this blend. Concentrated dark fruit with a hint of fig and smooth finish. A wine of it's place - not a generic "international" blend. Drink this if you like Italian wines like Primitavo. Good value for the $$.
Earthy & Spicy
Very earthy wine with a wonderful combination of flavors. Has high acidic finish.
