Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ruby in color with notes of cherry and pepper. There are notes of herbal undertones and supple ripe cherries on the palate. The wine is dry and well balanced.
Attractive raspberry jam and spice on the nose of this full-bodied Italian red wine. Good value. - Community Wine Reviews
