“An intriguing wine with an extraordinary vital energy based on wild fruits, wild strawberries, mulberry and pomegranate An extremely gastronomic version of Cerasuolo which we like very much for its meaty peppery notes In the mouth the wine reflects its olfactory impressions and thus we happily re-encounter the black pepper mixed with carob and sweet cherries Quick on the palate with a very savoury rounded finish with hints of mulberry”
