Aromas of coffee and espresso nose, with black fruit and smoke on the nose and palate of this robust red. Smooth and mouth-filling on the palate with black fruit and smoke on a long finish. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with meat lovers' pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine immediately made me think of sitting in a big leather chair in front of a fireplace on a winter night. It's got aromas of leather, spice, cocoa, cinnamon, dark cherries, and vanilla. The taste is a little more round than is typical for this blend, with the cocoa and dark cherry coming through. High acidity and soft round tannins complete the picture. making this a good wine for hearty Italian fare, prime rib, or sipping it in front of a fire.
This full-bodied Italian red wine is a classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes. The Corvina and Rondinella grapes for this Italian red wine are vinified at harvest time while the rest are sent to drying rooms where the grapes slowly become raisined until they are pressed in January. The juice is blended with the fresh wine in September to start a second fermentation aimed at providing extra concentration and complexity. - Community Wine Reviews
