An absolute BEST BUY. Don’t let its light red and ruby color full you. This wine packs a flavorful punch with classic Etna volcanic mineral with a ripe cherry core with roasted sage brush, rosemary and thyme with a dried floral almost potpourri-like lift.

I like this wine. Cherry, dried herbs. Found this in a little wine shop in Wrigleyville.

Ripe black cherry, blackberry and muddled forest fruit on the nose with hints of licorice and tobacco that extend to the palate exposing further notes of violet and cedar on a long finish. Beautiful structure. High acidity match with high, ripe tannins; medium bodied and medium alcohol.
