Blueberries, grape bubble gum, thyme, pine needles, balsamic, sea tart candies. Excellent acidity, perfect neutral texture for rich or light dishes. Excellent acidity, slight dusty tannin finish.

Initially bit dusty but nice medium body with notes of cherries and herbs. First Umbria tasting recommended at Philippe's Wine cellar in New Orleans

Rich red fruit w/ a tar edge. Nice depth for a wine which never saw any oak.

A good solid wine, but doesn't live up to high expectations..maybe an odd year. Fruit was good but not overly complex.
