Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Then I noticed strawberry jam, slight oak notes and a hint of soap. On the palate the wine was medium bodied with sour cherry, raspberry. I still got lavender and slight oaky smoke. The wine was a tad too astringent for my taste, but it had a nice level of tannins with a short finish. The acidity made the wine seem a bit off balance.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Bright, ruby red. The bouquet is intense, fragrant with elegant scents of iris and raspberries and spices. The taste is dry, full and harmonious with an elegant aftertaste of toasted almonds and fruit.Food Match: Pizza, pasta in meat sauce, hard cheese, grilled meats, chicken and antipasti (cold).
