On the palate it’s bright, with fairly rich berry fruit supported by lively acidity and tannins that are a little brisker than some, laying down a warm berry fruit burr and flowing into a fairly long warm finish. Pleasant and approachable, by comparison with some of the other Ruché wines it is more of a food wine and will work well with spiced – not sweet – grilled meats or stews, and will also be a good bet with oriental dishes. Not so good by the glass due to the dryness of the tannins. Score: 2 (Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review, Sept. 16, 2010) .. 87 .... V nice light wine + berry nose
