Exotic aromas of cured meats, animal and some distinct chocolate on the palate with coffee notes, licorice and dark berries. The hefty tannins were well integrated and paired with the simplicity of the meal I had at Quinto Quarto in the West Village, NYC. Carciofi with arucola, shavings of pecorino cheese and olives made for a super salad course, followed by Fresh pasta with sausage and mushrooms.
Ruby-red in color tending toward garnet as the wine matures. Dry and robust on the palate with an excellent, velvety texture, this wine offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, currant, black cherry and spice, framed by intriguing hints of chocolate."
