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!

i have had a love affair with this wine for going on 10 years now thanks to a recommendation from a wine store on court street in cobble hill. its a $15 wine i keep coming back to. the unusual grape blend is immediately apparent when you taste this one (45% gaglioppo, 15% greco nero, 15% nerollo capucchio, 15% magliocco canino and 10% sangiovese) so its just a completely unique flavor profile for me. lots of black olive on the nose and black olive, tar, and prunes on the palate. goes great with garlic-y italian food.

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.
