Warm, inviting white pepper, tapenade, green pepper with black and blue berries. Smells ripe and rich. Powerful texture of cassis, roasted oak, dried oregano and firm, grainy tannin. Modern style, some polish, without being alcoholic. Fun in the mouth

Cranberry juice cocktail and black pepper on the nose. Sour red fruit forward on the palate with subtle dirty and mineral undertones.

Pretty dusty and exotic blue flower, warm spice, earth tapenade and blackberry-raspberry nose. Quite showy and real spicy! Full and plush palate, flecked with pepper, violets blueberries and dried oregano. Moderate grippy tannins, enough acidity, and just a touch of heat frame a long spicy finish and makes you dream of slurping tomato base pasta amongst a feild of straw colored grass in the sweltering heat!

Very enticing Sicilian blend. Meaty syrah meets red cherry fruit of Nero d'Avola. Tre Bicchierri winner and well deserved.

Tar, earth and minerality. Agressive tannins and black licorice flavors. Needs food.

Candied black cherry, plum, bacon, black pepper, tobacco and spice box. Juicy, ripe fruit which bounces around the palate with leather and spiced dried meat. Finishes with dark berry fruit. Syrah seems more dominant. Solid old world feel.
