Natalie's Score: 89/100

Black cherry liqueur richness and depth of flavour, though this is a dry wine. Full-bodied with terrific and satisfying layers of flavour. Great price.

The label says, “Appassimento,” which means drying – the grapes are allowed to dry some before pressing. The wine is deep black garnet ruby with black reflections and some almandine in the rim. The bouquet is intense, with berry fruit supported by some sweetish accents and pleasant greenish vegetal notes mingled with wood smoke and peppery accents, and some sea salt and cedar. On the palate it’s medium bodied and quite smooth, with fairly rich cherry plum fruit supported by moderate minerality and slight dusky accents more than acidity, and by tannins that are ample and smooth with some dusky accents that flow into a clean rather dusky savory finish. It’s not as bright as it has been in some other vintages, but displays pleasing depth; it’s quite approachable and will drink nicely. Score: (2 out of 3) Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review
