Valle Reale Tribbiano 2008
Brilliant garnet in color with intense purple tones. This young red offers explosive aromas of blueberries and sweet cherries, with notes of licorice and spices. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and plush, with loads of fresh red fruits. Easy going and ready to be enjoyed, this is a versatile, authentic Italian red: delicious by the glass and perfect with hearty food such as eggplant parmigiana, meat-based pasta, sausages, meatballs and salami.
Average, fairly uninteresting...not a lot of fruit - more green notes with green pepper finish, light tannins. I do prefer a wine with a little more fruit and "character"...maybe a little "young", but not sure if age will help here.
Three and a half glasses
