Review: This wine is meaty with lots of body and a great velvety mouth feel.  It is rich and dark in colour, with vibrant flavours. It tastes a lot more sophisticated then what you would initially expect. Part of its lustre can be attributed to the small percent of ‘appassimento’, or air-dried raisined, grapes.  It is full of black cherry and coffee flavours; but balanced nicely by supple tannins and almost pleasantly bitter on the finish.  One of the reviews I read compares drinking this wine to a hedonistic experience.  I would tend to agree. Maker of this wine also makes Casa Contini – already added to my tasting list.
