This is a relatively unknown red from northeast Italy that you should know. Made from the Lagrein grape. This is much more serious than most wines utilizing that grape. Deep ruby/purple in color. The nose has dark cherries, spice and a bit of pine. On the palate, this has black cherries and cherries. Very rich fruit but also a great backbone of acidity. Would work well with a wide variety of foods. Some tannins, this is still young and has a few more years until peak. Should have another 10 to 15 years in it.
Green/gold in color (not the typical copper notes). The nose is nice with minerals and limes. Slightly oily texture. This is all about minerals on the palate. Slightly sour lime note. There is a bit of warmth but only 12.5% Alc. Very food friendly with all but the heartiest of foods. At $10, this is a great value. Drink now.
Deep ruby in color. The nose has dark cherries, some smoke, some leather and a bit of spice. Great silky but full texture. On the palate, dark and sour cherries with some forest floor. Shows a nice complexity. It opens beautifully in the glass. Great with food. Long finish. This wine has soul.
