“Wonderfully intense ruby red in color. Offering enticing aromas of black cherry, leather, tobacco & earth. Very well-structured and full of dark, ripe fruit, this builds to a vibrant, softly tannic finish with a layered earthiness that defines the classic style of this lovely wine. The finish is well layered, structured, remarkably balanced, yet long and persistent. This red reminds us of a delicious Brunello di Montalcino at ½ the price! A great red to pair with your favorite grilled meats, roasts or a classic Italian aged cheese and charcuterie plate. Drink now – 2030.”
