SOLD OUT Displaying vibrant garnet hues characteristic of this Italian varietal, the wine is highly perfumed with redcurrant and cherry fruits mingling with anise and cloves. The palate brims with bright cherries, spice and licorice wound into a tight structure of crunchy acidity and soft velvety tannins. Medium bodied in style with a long, clean finish.

Needless to say Italian fare is the way to go with pastas and risottos, pizza, mushrooms, root vegetables and the savoury tannins will accompany most game and red meats.
