Tasting Notes

The minerality of the nose creates a delicate combination of morello and sour cherry and prune. Floral and spicy notes follow in a superbly persistent finish. Gentle tannins, impressive acidity combine with the classic delicacy and alcoholic content of Primitivo in the flavors of this once forceful but now elegant and noble wine. A perfect partner to pasta with rich meat sauces and rich cheeses.

Reviews & Scores

This is fresh and medium-bodied, with hints of mocha and smoke lacing the dried raspberry and black cherry fruit. A balanced red, showing spice and citrus accents on the creamy finish.
