I just love when a wine reflects the soil it came from. It makes me feel like I am there! Sniffing this wine transported me to Italy in my mind. Rocky scent, with loads of chocolate on the nose as well. Very little fruit coming through but some blackberryness. Midpalate – DRY, acidic, tannic. Berry and mineral flavors that linger on the finish. This wine just begs for a good Italian dish. Very unique and exciting. And for the price, it is a must try. But I’d have to say… this, like most other Italian wine, is a food wine. Drink it alone and you may be disappointed. Pair it with the right dish and just savor the scent… and you’ll love it!
