Ben says

★★ Great Wine Black tea, ethereal red fruits and violets are immediately attractive on the nose. It’s a more youthful and fruit-forward Taurasi than one with age but it’s beautifully and cleanly handled. The wine mellows into a juicy, long finish.

Food Pairing

Fresh pasta with a meat ragu would work a charm. It’s also going to be a pretty stellar steak wine.
