Medium ruby color with promising dark fruit, dried rose, white pepper, gentle spice and graphite aromas. On the palate it's feels light on its feet, but approached medium-bodied. It's elegant, dry, fresh, and balanced with mixed black and red cherry, red plum and spice flavors with a very appealing minerality and a lengthy finish. Like most Italian wines, it seems it made for the table. At under $20 wonderful QPR. Will buy more!

Been awhile since I've had any Benanti, but it's as great as I remember. Very tasty.

Bright & juicy with red cherry and red currant, some tobacco & spice and a good mineral streak. Comes across as very light but shows good grip on the palate. Nicely balanced with pronounced refreshing acidity and good length. Drinking very nicely.

Great acidity and stoniness. Garnet color, restrained red fruits and it pairs deliciously with pasta, rapini and sausage dish (no tomatoes).

Medium body, beautiful quaffing. Not as volcanic or smoky as most productions from Etna but a good partner wine for stews.
