Ruggero di Bardo

Puglia Susumaniello 2021

This wine is as dark as ink in the glass. It smells dark, too, with notes of black cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, forest floor and hints of vanilla and cedar. The palate is bold and fruity, with cherry flavors hitting the tongue first. The sweet oak spice is enjoyable, not overdone. Tannins are firm and the wine has a good tannic grip. The overall feeling of sweetness is beautiful, but don’t expect a dessert wine. This is a truly enjoyable red wine at a truly affordable price. — a month ago

Salento Appassimento Red Blend

Had the 2020 in August of 2023. Some tobacco and blackberry on the nose. Light tannins with some black cherry, blackberry running throughout. Totally drinkable and will definitely look for this one again. Paired well with a spicy sausage and broccoli pasta dish. — a month ago
