Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild red currant bouquet with a hint of cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle oak and plum blend with hints of black cherry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are slightly sticky and linger a bit. I would pair this very food friendly wine with veal parmigianna. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A vintage of structure, great depth and concentration, Le Volte 2008 is particularly full and opulent. On the nose complex, intense fruit with hints of wild berry and sweet spice. On the palate, ample and dense, with expressive supple and well integrated tannins and a long lingering, notably vibrant finish with aromatic fruit notes.
