Natalie's Score: 87/100

A vibrant red with tart cherry notes and dark spices. Full-bodied but smooth with great quaffability!

Food pairings: grilled meats, light stews, fava bean puree with refried greens.

The bouquet is elegant, with berry fruit mingled with sandalwood spice and some cedar, and also brambly acidity. Nice balance, and very young. On the palate it’s medium bodied, with bright berry fruit supported by clean brambly acidity and tannins that are a bit splintery, and flow into a clean rather brambly finish. It’s not a wine to drink by the glass far from the table, but will work very well with foods, and will also be nice with traditional Puglian vegetarian foods. Quite versatile, in a food pairing key. Will also age nicely, becoming silky with time. Score: 2 (out of 3) Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review
