Expert Reviews

Black like an Australian red wine, this is a deep rich wine with licorice and cooked plums plus a nice spice edge showing resin like an old fashioned butchers shop floor covered in saw dust. The palates got weight and length but not the thickness of Australian wines and the hall mark Italian tannins are there firm and drying but not hard or heavy. Serve with Italian food especially pasta with tomato sauces and drink over the next 12 months. A great alternative to Shiraz for those that like their reds big and soft.Robert Geddes MW (DEC/2011)
