Bright ruby-red in color, this youthful red offers explosive aromas of blueberries, cherries, licorice, and sweet spices. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with plentiful acidity and a pleasant finish.
This wine can be served before a meal, but it pairs well with meatballs, tomato sauces, eggplant parmigiana, and risotto.
This is a terrible vintage. We have had a previous vintage, maybe '08, that was quite good. Skip this 2011
