Ruby hue with aromas of dried plums, wet tree bark and earth; dried stone fruits with integrated structure across a palate with tea and chocolate for a moderately long finish. Great Negroamaro value.

Chalky and a bit astringent on the nose with an unusual spice note that melds cedar with iris, grilled beef, and beet root. Fascinating on the nose. In the mouth this is medium plus bodied and yet it remains quite light on it’s feet with early suggest...

A somewhat different Italian red blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. It starts out a little thin and metallic with a hint of licorice. There's a good bit of earthiness on the mid-palate along with dried black plums and raisin. Read More
Opaque violet, intriguing aromas of dark stone fruits, lasagna and tea; rich fruit profile with integrated structure over an elegant and long finish. A terrific value. Read More

A joy for the money. Two obscure grapes from the boot. Give demeaning comments the boot. This unpretentious quaffer offers balance, acid and adequate heft. We are glugging it by the case. Read More
Extremely red fruit forward, an explosion in your mouth. Oak on the finish which felt fake and not in concert with the fruit. As it remained opened (or as we drank more), it blended better. I want to try this again to get another perspective, but will give it the benefit of the doubt. Read More

This '07 Vereto had probably been on the shelf too long however...it had trademark old world freshness, that shone above the diminishing fruit. Just not a wine of much personali... Read More
