Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Good bright medium red. Wild red berries, sour red cherry, violet and sweet spices on the nose, plus hints of blood orange and savory earthy scents. Bright and juicy on entry, then tougher and concentrated in the middle, showing less floral lift and more fleshiness than is usual with frappato. Finishes long and full, with strong iron and saline traces.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The juicy core of crushed black cherry, dark currant, spice and wild underbrush notes is supported by medium tannins and fresh acidity. Well-balanced and long.
