Ruby red color with purple nuances. This wine is rich, intense and harmonious. A perfect fusion of ripe fruits reminiscent of wild berries, prunes and charred wood and vanilla. It is best when served with baked pasta dishes and grilled white meats.
"The internationally-styled 2000 Don Luigi (a barrique-aged blend of 90% Montepulciano and 10% Tintilia) boasts an inky ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet nose of black fruits, spice box, creosote, and vanilla. Full-bodied, dense, and chewy, with sweet tannin and well-integrated alcohol (13.6%), it should drink well for 7-8 years."
"The brilliant winemaker Riccardo Cotarella is now performing his magic at this estate, which should be sought out by readers seeking stunning wine values."
