  • Ronchi di Cialla Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso Colli Orientali del Friuli 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Calabrone 2007, very fine and complex nose, blackberry and blueberries marmalade, black pepper, cocoa and cigar tobacco. Sip is powerfull, red/black fruits over all, soft, maybe too much soft, quite tannicity. Generally i like it, 35% of withered grapes make it a little juicy. Read More
