Italian table wine: cherries dark fruit and a bit of la dolce vita. Super wonderfun — 5 years ago
Spicy Italian companion — 6 years ago
Right now I rated it a 9.0 but maybe if I had let it open up it would have a higher rate. This came highly recommended from the guy at the wine store. It's a full bodied wine with a deep red color. Cherry and raspberry on the nose. Slightly tannic and acidic. — 4 years ago

Purple in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, earth, milk chocolates, tobacco and black pepper.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, smoke, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, earth, dark chocolates, graphite, black pepper, spices and light vegetables.
Long finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
A nice blend of Barbera and Syrah from Piedmont. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Spicy with nice complexity. A little hot at the back of the throat, but I didn't have time to properly open it up.
Needs 2 years in the bottle to mature properly. Could age nicely in the next 7 years.
Only 4600 bottles produced.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
