A blends of Negroamaro, Montepulciano and Aglianico. Deep inky colour. Fruit drive nose with ripe cherries, cola and pressed wild blackcurrants. Dry, a touch surprisingly it is medium bodied rather than full bodied as the nose would have suggested. More wild black fruits on the palate with powdery tannins on the finish. Fruit driven and a good example of these southern Italian reds.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
