This was really nice and as it was less money than their Amarone, a good value. Purple in color, garnet towards the rim, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, slight leather and an herbal note. full bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, black raspberry fruit with some black cherries with spice and slight forest floor. Nice finish. This is very tasty on its own and will work well with a lot of foods. Classsic choice is pizza. Drink over the next eight to ten years.
