TASTING NOTE: (Translated from the Italian) Its fruit is top both in thickness and smooth taste thanks to the pulp and natural syrup of the grape, which enrobe, smooth, silky and balanced, any acidity and the tannins. This is a wine with a creamy viscosity and soft harmony. This champion is thick and balanced to the point that its heart shines through. Pure blackberry spread exhibiting the most crystalline and balsamic spicy nature. A wine among the best reds from Italy this year. Chapeau. Score - 98 (lucamaroni.com, June 15, 2018) Price $ 24.95
