Ho trovato questo vino in enoteca "per caso" e ho deciso di prenderlo per accompagnarlo al pranzo della domenica. Vino decisamente interessante, nonostante l'apparente semplicità e immediatezza. Il calice regala un bel rosso rubino e al naso si può sentire la prugna e la violetta. La vaniglia del legno è chiaramente presente anche se non eccessiva. Buona la persistenza.

Place of Tasting: Roma
Price: € 16.00
