External Reviews for Vestini Campagnano Pallagrello Nero Terre del Volturno IGT
One of the biggest, burliest wines you're going to come across anywhere! Brutally charming with a nose that never ends - exotic spices, plums and forest fruit, mulberry and black tea. The palate grabs you and stuffs in bushels of stewed black fruits, bitter chocolate, Dutch licorice and cardamom. All of this weight is amazingly offset with an acidity that allows hints of blood orange, bergamot and cedar to texturally complicate the flavors. Dynamic tannins and a presence that is beyond expectations. The muscularity is immense, so make certain you are sitting down before taking a bite out of this one.
