    This is definitely a winner. Deep dark berry and plum fruit with some tobacco, earth, and lots of italo-barnyard. Just a classy wine with a velvety and silk texture and a classy finish. If there’s a wine that goes great with roast pork, this is it. Food friendly yet nicely ripe and fresh at the same time. Love this stuff. Only word of caution….I had it open for a few days, and after three days, it began tasting a little pruney…tells me that it should be had in the next 5 years or so. YMMV.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
