Planeta Plumbago 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red with pink hues. Typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. Fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Very distinctive, this is the wine that best highlights the characteristics of the terroir. Supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish.

This wine has a very "bright fruit" quality. Lots of cherries and a little spice. Very smooth. I need a plate of pasta, now!
