Couldn’t get a fix on this wine; a bit mysterious and a bit deviant. Made me go back for a curious second sip which was a little rugged and harsh around the corners of the mouth. A fighter.
Very good red wine from a winery raised in 1950, one of the most important in Kalabria.Spicy aroma, pepper, confiture and plum taste.
Pungent spicy nose with almost rubbery undertones which turn to smokiness as the wine breathes. Nice sparkling acidity and low, smooth tannins. Spice and smokiness follow through with some nice red fruit/cherry. Very pleasant, excellent value.
I love this wine. The full and rich flavor compliments spicy and smoked meat dishes, and reggiano cheese. It has made me a new fan of the Gaglioppo grape.
Just...perfect. That's it.
