Wine Review: This wine finished in 4th place in our blind tasting of Italian Red varietals. This very dark ruby wine opens with a light cherry and smoky campfire like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, juicy, nice palate coverage, and displays cherry and cranberry flavors with hints of oak. The finish is dry, shows mild tannins, and its brief. The panel felt this was a good wine to pair with lamb or pizza. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant ruby red in color with excellent clarity. The floral and red fruit nose assault the senses at arms length. Great red fruit and faint underbrush on the palate dominate this light bodied, easy drinking red. It is uncomplicate by oak, smooth with little-to-no tannic bite, and maintains a good balance of acidity generated by the cooler northern climate.
