This is a very good example of what a napa can can be from a flavor stand point. However the sweetness of this wine speaks to me of RS. Given that this wine is primarily served at Ciccio's in Youngsville which is an excellent pizzeria this one may be perfect with in that context.

I probably don't need to ever buy Napa Negroamaro again but glad to have experienced it once! I love the ambition but Altamura should stick to their Sangio which is SO much better.

Not bad but not my favorite. The Sangiovese was much much better

It's not Salice Salento but it's black and robust and great with Ciccio pizza.

Could be the best Sangiovese I’ve ever had! 2000 vintage.

Had this at Phil’s. Ridiculously good - I could drink this until I pass out.
