Spicy, black olives, black pepper, leather and tar. Well balanced, moderate plus sweet tannins and moderate plus acidity. ❤️

A delicious red blend from Calabria made with indigenous grapes. Dried fruits, prune, fig, leather and earth. Sausage please!

This was such a fruity and spicy surprise. Flavors were such an interesting blend from the various grape varieties. Enhanced my sushi dinner and spiciness.

Gaglioppo and southern Italian blend. Savory, jammy, and juicy, more fruit-forward than I was expecting but dry enough. Well rounded, soft, not very tannic, low acid. Ripe plums, prune, crushed berries, cranberry, touch of tobacco and oak and earthy funkiness. And a bargain! From Flatiron Wines.
