Aromas of dried cranberries and cherries interlace with crushed oyster shell, iron and volcanic ash. More ash and bitter berries on the palate. It’s medium-bodied with elegant, silky tannins and a complex, savory character. Better in two or three years. Try after 2022.

This lively nerello mascalese offers flavors of crunchy red berries that mingle with notes of blood orange and white smoke. Fine sandpapery tannins give shape to the bright red fruit, and the wine finishes with pleasant herbal accents.
