The grapes for this wine are grown on estate-owned vineyards located on hillsides in the Monferrato and Langhe region of Piemonte. Ruby-red in color with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish.
"Very plummy and grapey on the nose, with hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, soft and succulent, with lots of flavor and a long, long finish. Delicious."
I absolutely loved this wine. What a wonderful surprise. I have ordered more bottles and would highly recommend this wine!!!
Had this wine with some fresh pecorino cheese and it was just perfect. Great value, and wonderful vintage.
Just went back to buy more--sad to see it's sold out. What a lovely, velvety red. Paired with gourmet beef chili tonight...could not have been a better match!
