Region: Abruzzo, Italy
Style: Medium bodied
Nose/Taste: Rich and ripe dark cherry fruit, along with attractive spicy, smoky notes. Fleshy and full, with surprising depth and length.
Pairings: Roasted meats, pasta, pizza.
Critical acclaim: James Suckling 92 Points "Aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, cloves, sandalwood and seashells. Ash and smoked meat, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with smooth tannins. Some smoky minerality on the finish. Rich, juicy nature to this. Drink or hold."
