On the nose the wine has dark fruit flavors of blackberry, leather, clove spice and hints of pipe tobacco. On the palate, this medium body wine has dark fruits flavors of Bing cherry and red current. The finish has more fruit flavors of mulberry, plum and chocolate. Pairs nicely with most traditional Italian red sauce dishes, greens, and root vegetables.
