Baked cherry and dried fig flavors are underscored by rich smoke and mocha notes in this medium- to full-bodied red, with sculpted tannins. Balanced, showing a minerally finish. Drink now through 2023. 54,166 cases made.

This blend of 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera is bright in red currant and red cherry aromas, with dustings of saw dust and anise. Medium in weight and displaying lively acidity, the palate is racy and streamlined in crisp red-fruit flavors under a layer of vanilla.
