17$ from a PA liquor store; last bottle on the shelf; wifey’s choice. A fascinating bottle.m, because the wine is made of Zwigelt, a predominantly Austrian grape, yet grown in the northeast of Italy. Nose: tight blueberries and raspberries, funk, and star anise+cloves; palate, super fruit forward in a great way, juicy, seductive with initially tight tannins; finish: long and dry and a bit medicinal. Great new frontiers of discovery!

Enjoyable, but an oddly American expression for the region.
