I don't normally drink desert wine, but when I do....

Kidding aside this is killer, acidity , freshness tannin, it offers a great experience for the wine aficionado and the novice.

Black cherry, cassis. As huge as it is it is just as fresh. Full bodied , fresh acidity and ripe tannins. 13.5 abv!

A raisin-leaning nose. A depth so deep it escapes my ability to describe. An obvious pruniness but held in check by a dark beautiful depth so extreme it appears to be what's left of the grape after the grape is gone.

Full body but not viscous. Great deep purple color. Fine deep red fruit but with a grave black-peppery finish. Sweet but flavorful (not "off-dry," as Bar Veloce suggest).

Such a luscious delivery of Black Cherry goodness! Skip dessert just drink this...perhaps with Dark Chocolate to round out the deliciousness!

Smooth, deep red with a dark cherry finish. Awesome dessert wine we brought back from Italy. Pairs well with chocolate, would be great with chocolate covered strawberries! #wine #recioto
