This was $25 on a restaurant list but retails for between $15 and $20 making it a great value. The grape is Lacrima. My first time trying the grape and the wine. Pop and pour. The color is purple/ruby, mostly clear and bright. On the nose, this is very interesting. Plums, celery, and bitters (think Campari or Aperol). Someone said oranges but I think it is more a bitters quality made from citrus, at least for me. On the palate, this is hugely tannic. Our bottle did not last long, so I am not sure if air would help or even how it ages. There is plenty of fruit so maybe everything integrates over time. There is a tart acidity that begs for food (it is Italian). Black cherries and some plums. Good finish. First, it is always so interesting to try a different grape and Italy is just full of them. Second, this is a very nice wine that worked well with an eggplant dish and bruschetta. Some depth and complexity. At this price, I might need to lay a bottle or two down just to learn more about how this ages. 12.5% Alc.
