Not for the faint hearted this wine is big and bold
It has 5 years on it and I think just starting to drink well now.

Colour: You know itís a red wine believe me.
Its dark and lively if that makes any sense but before you can think about the
Colour of the wine the nose is jumping out from the glass.

Nose: Intense dark fruit, red berries with a little confection at first,
With whiffs of wood lifting the fruit up from the glass.

Palate: Juicy dark cherry and big up front red berry flavours fill the mouth
This is a well-made Italian variety with flavours of wood and ripe fruit that go
on forever.

This wine is big and bold and can be enjoyed by its self however, food just
Works so well with this wine remember it is an Italian variety after all.
