Fabulously Italian, this is sheer joy. It’s also terrific value. A bit like Barolo but easier on the palate. It’s one of Southern Italy’s best Italian reds: heather, violets and cherries drift with cranberries and a touch of plum; the palate is serious and contemplative with darker, more plummy fruit, with branches and leaves of wild herbs stitched beautifully throughout. Good with pasta, pizza and meats.


Tasting Notes

Swig Note: Gorgeous colour – amethyst and rubies. The nose is a lovely mix of flowers and fruit – heather, violets and cherries drift with cranberries and a touch of plum. Caressing. The palate then surprises somewhat with its depth and complexity. The nose is whimsy, whilst on the tongue and in the mouth it gets more serious; contemplative: the fruit gets darker, more plummy, with branches and leaves of wild herbs stitched beautifully throughout the fruit. This is at once so very Italian and yet unlike any Italian red I’ve tried. Gripping and rustic on the one hand, then polished and seamless on the other – the finish is so long. This is a food wine in the most wonderful sense – joyous on its own, but with the right food like roast or bbq lamb, the palate becomes electric; thrilling. 13.5% Drink now – 2022.
