Villa Raiano Cretanera

External Review by AOC Fine Wines:

The wine just gets it right now. There are big strong berry flavors and an overpowering oak that has mellowed in to balance over the last couple of years. The wine is aged for 24 months in French oak. It isn't picked usually until late October or the first week of November. The vines are about 40 years old and lend a hint of spice to the wine.
