Lovely, complex, strawberry-rhubarb richer-style rosé from 55+ year old Montepulciano vines in Abruzzo. High acid, tannins (even from just 20 minute maceration), and big fruit make this a great food pairing wine. For us, it was Sicilian-style seafood risotto; a lighter white may have wilted. Tavel fans will find a new home here. — 3 days ago

Undisputedly one of the world’s greatest rosés, this wine has levels of complexity most pink wines can only dream of. And with age? Kill me now. 10 years on this wine smells of potpourri and dirty socks, orange peel and dried herbs. In the mouth, dried exotic citrus flavors and dried strawberries are carried across the palate in a silky mountain stream of minerality as dried flowers and a tiny hint of pink peppercorns linger in the finish. Gorgeous, layered and constantly evolving this is a wine of meditation if there ever was one. — a month ago

Greek wine evening, wine #5
Reminiscent of a Cerasuolo di Vittoria, chalky, dried, dusty cherries with a healthy pinch of dried herbs and this lovely earthy character.
Surprisingly light in the palate, with lovely acidity, pure light cherries and lively character.
This is so nice - so drinkable, with great interesting edges all around. Brilliant! — 2 months ago
Best wine I have had at this price in a long time. Bright and dark fruit. Virtually no tannin. And either acid or a bit of effervescence that gives it additional character. — 16 days ago
Ah the Sicilian Nero. Makes us happy. — 24 days ago
Delicious. Rich. Juicy not grippy. Kind of does a whole lot. Really good with steak. — 2 months ago
