Here is a fly-under-the-radar, smokin’ hot deal of a wine. From southern Italy’s Campania region, it is an unoaked example of pristine fruit and complexity.
With a medium ruby hue and deep legs, this wine has medium plus aromas of boysenberry, plum and blueberry enhanced by dried herbs and anise. In the mouth, it is dry and has medium ripe, velvety tannins – only a few edges here. The acidity is medium plus and the body is satisfyingly full with average alcohol and no boozyness to speak of. The flavours are medium plus and exude more blueberry, plum, berry along with crushed thyme and anise, vine and refreshing mint.
This wine is clean, balanced, layered and has beautiful fruit. Drink now or hold for up to 3 more years. It’s available in the US for between $13-26/bottle, depending on the State. Went fabulously well with antipasto, olives, prosciutto and cheeses.
WSET Very Good.
