I love all the punta crena wines but this one especially partially because of the label and the story about the foxes eating the grapes! It’s a bit more dark fruited than the rossesse but still very light on its feet and perfect with a chill on a warm summer night with eggplant pasta! wish I was in Italy!!

So juicy and high-toned with deep notes of ripe black cherry, almost candied, there's some blue-fruit that seems to be apparent too. Rose petals, sweet licorice, rocks, cool herbs and a kiss of sweet spices. So fresh and fun to drink with its freshness and energy. One of my favorite wines in the KL portfolio

Simple, tasty. Some bitterness, persistent gassiness doesn’t blow off.

Only know Cruvin Vineyard in the world. You could drink this with fish.

As light as gamay but a little different animal. More acidity and blueberry and pepper flavors. Fresh, juicy and gulpable on a Tues night.

Light cherry aroma. Perfume roses on the palate. Soft finish.

Dark ruby with garnet hue. Dried rose, Violet, tart red cherry, blackberry, almond, cinnamon, med to med plus tannin, a bit saltiness at the end. Some minerality with a touch of earthy wet soil note. Serve chilled. The character of this grape: when grapes r ripe, it will fall on the ground and stick together. The fox sits under the vine on the wine label is waiting for the grape to fall. Interesting wine label.

Still a light red and served chilled but medium bodied dark cherry flavor. This was paired with rabbit and Jap umboshi. The chef created all the dishes in response to KLWM wines. Kudos!

A grape variety I've never heard of?!? Crovino from Liguria. Juicy like a cru Beaujolais, white pepper like a Rhône, rustic like a northern Piemontese Nebbiolo. Really interesting, but I wish it had a bit more acidity. Feels like something is missing from the mid-palate.
