The wine is ruby red in color with intense aromas mushroom, earth, cherry and chocolate. On the palate it is bursting with bright cherry fruit that is lased in chocolate. This Sicilian red is medium bodied with balanced acidity and a hint if exotic spices. The tannins are smooth and well integrated and the wine is easy to enjoy by its self or with a hearty meal. We enjoyed this wine with some pork chops cooked with garlic and rosemary, sautéed apple and some wilted romaine with balsamic reduction. This wine is available in Seattle for about $14 and is well worth the price. Salute!
