Domenico Valentino Tenuta Del Conte Ciro Rosso Superiore 2007 DOC

Ciro is located on the ball of the boot that is Italy and Gaglioppo grapes make up this fine red wine.

With an herbal bouquet of mint and waves of dark fruits, raspberry, black currants, dried cranberry and raisins, followed on the palate with black olives, and chocolate, coffee and spices.

This was one of the featured wines at a recent tasting at The Wine Room of Forest Hills.

The winery is on a track of prestige as the "Gold Guide wines Veronelli 2011".
Wine "Ciro" that produces the winery Tenuta del Conte is exceptional, to taste to find out!
