94Vinous / IWC

...hauntingly perfumed bouquet that mixes violets and roses with black currants, plums and rich exotic spices. It’s deeply textural, almost velvety in feel, with ripe dark fruits and a saturation of salty minerals that creates a sultry expression. Brisk acids keep the energy amazingly high, even as fine-grained tannins and an intense concentration of primary fruits settle in, making for a structured and poised yet almost juicy finale.

93Wine Enthusiast

Full-bodied and elegant, this opens with enticing, delicate scents of fragrant blue flowers, ripe plum, botanical herbs and dark spice. Smooth, structured and elegant, the savory palate delivers ripe black cherry, star anise and crushed mint framed in tightly knit, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.


Italy, Emilia Romagna, Romagna

Emilia-Romagna is a vast, diverse, wine and food producing region in northeastern Italy. Located north of Tuscany and south of Veneto, Emilia-Romagna is home to some of Italy’s most revered food cities, namely Bologna, Parma and Modena. Famous for Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and Parma prosciutto, the region has always benefited from its advantageous geography on the fertile plains and riverbanks of the Po River. The region has 145,000 acres of vineyards that produce grapes for red, white and sparkling wines. The region includes one DOCG appellation, Albana di Romagna, and nineteen DOCs. Emilia-Romagna is known for its sparkling wines, both sweet and dry, and Lambrusco, commonly produced as a slightly sweet, slightly effervescent red wine. But Emilia-Romagna also grows Sangiovese abundantly, as well as Barbera, Bonarda and, recently, Cabernet Sauvignon. White wine grapes most frequently grown are Malvasia, Albana, Pignoletto, and Trebbiano. Trebbiano is used for light dry white wines as well as many of the spumantes.


Red Wine, Sangiovese, D.O.C.

This red grape is largely grown in central Italy. As the sole component or in a blend, it gives us Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino and Super Tuscans, among other favorites wines. The name is derived from the Latin for “blood of Jove.”
