This wine looked quite promising, with an interesting blend from the right part of Italy for these grapes, and having a nice dark color through the bottle. It’s quite soft and fruity, especially for an Italian wine, but it’s really delicious.
This wine really doesn’t need any air, but might be a little softer and richer after about an hour. It has ripe flavors of dark blackberry / loganberry, maybe a little blueberry, dark red cherry / plum, and some of the earthy raisin / prune that many southern Italian wines seem to have. It was so good that we easily sucked down the whole bottle on a Friday night.
