Like the cool side of a pillow filled with raspberries. Plush but bright. A bit one note but very enjoyable and good value.

Great nose, dried fruit. Very balanced taste with the dried dark fruit carrying over. Honeysuckle, a tiny bit of fruit with solid backing in acid and tannin.

Dark ruby (almost purple) color. Plush aromas of purple flowers, black fruits and baking spices. Just a touch of Brett. The pallet is loaded with black berry/cherry/raspberry fruit. Touch of black pepper on the long finish. Full bodied. Interesting varietal.

One of the better Bonarda wines from Oltrepò Pavese. Plenty of red and black fruit, some subtle spices and smooth tannins. This is my favorite regions for Bonarda.

A good companion to a spicy and sweet pasta all'Amatriciana.
