Strong and gentle at the time Sami wine. Full-bodied with soft tannins. Velvety on the palate and persistence at the end. I was really impressed!

A nice Italian wine that’s under $20

Description: Medium ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, bramble fruit, blackberry, cherry, plum, chocolate, thyme, arugula & light earth flavours. Medium body and tannin with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Interesting bottle with a piece of vine attached to it.

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with arugula, prosciutto pizza

Tasted: 23 March 2016
