Old world colour and age meet youthful fruity flavors and a nose of amarone-inspired sun-dried berries and herbal undertones. Dried herbs on a velvety palate of fruit-driven delights. A lush mouthful of cherry and dried pomegranate marry crushed oregano. Sips lengthy and lovely with balanced bright acidity. Cheers for a memorable toast on a breezy summer’s eve.

Off the chart. Sweet (dry wine) red fruit. And black fruit too. Amazing. If you can find a sforzato try it!!

Aromas of ripe red fruits with sweet notes. On the palate plum and fig flavors with notes of cinnamon, cacao and espresso. Fine tannins, lingering, rich balance ending with sweet fruit.

Ohhhh yeah. Lip smacker here. Elegant licorice....starting to loose a little of its complexity but enough complexity to still maintain its core foundation of awesomeness

Beautiful and weird - a Nebbiolo from a northern region of Italy that clocks in at 15.5 but no sense of heat on the tongue.

Garnet purple in the glass. Big bosomy nose of black tea, dried flowers, cherries, and a bit of something meaty. This is echoed on the full-bodied palate with medium tannins and medium plus acidity. Medium Long finish of cherries on roasted beef. Great with hearty Italian/Mediterranean fare.

Transparent deep ruby garnet in the glass. Bosomy nose of violets, cherry, black tea. Medium plus tannins on entry lead to palate of violets, anise, and black cherry. Medium plus acidity. Medium long but light finish. A natural food wine with rich Italian fare.
