Ciao, bella! This wine has all the beauty of chocolate and blackberries, the savory of toffee and almond, and the spice of clove and vanilla. Mi scusi, I didn't mention the smooth, silky, rounded mouthfeel and the lingering finish. Another sip, per favore? Grazie! (Yes, this wine is perfect with Italian food!)

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The grapes started with a 3 day cold soak (after destemming and before inoculating) to allow gentle extraction of color without adding harsh tannins. The fruit started fermentation in our open stainless steel tanks, and was pressed before completion of fermentation to maintain more fruit aromatics. Juice went from the press pan to our large oak tank, used barrels, and stainless steel tanks. Full malolactic fermentation followed the completion of primary fermentation.

I lived the wine the taste was so very smooth and fruitful. My normal favorite is Beaujolais nouveau the the season but this I loved.

This can compete with very good California Reds.
