This favorite Italian blend shows rich and dark with aromas of strawberry, port like, over ripe plum, flint and cooked blackberry, blueberry like pie drippings or compote. Presents with a lot of fruit on the tongue followed by a huge jamminess that dissipates wrapping with strong tannin, and long, lingering finish. Excellent paired with cave aged cheddar.
This Italian Blend 53% Barbera / 47% Primitivo. Aged 24 months in 50% neutral French oak, 50% 2 year-old American oak.
