Natalie's Score: 89/100

Peppery with dark spices and black fruit on the nose. Savoury, meaty and full-bodied with juicy smooth layers of pleasure. This is mostly the Negroamaro grape with a splash of Malvasia Nera. Terrific depth, balance and elegance. Attractive dark fruit and spice on the finish.

Food pairings: hearty meat dishes, meat lovers' pizza.

This is primarily Negroamaro with a small portion of Malvasia Nera. Nice intensity on the nose with an interesting floral lift and suggestions of rich red cherry, black fruit, warm earthy leather, hickory and a hint of gingery spice. The palate is smooth and approachable with considerable lush fruit and more leathery tones. Good balance and complexity throughout. A fig note emerges on the dry and lifted finish.
