Italian giggle juice! This is definitely happy wine and a variety I have great hope for in our warm climate. The wine is an immediate pleasure but given a moment can be contemplative and cerebral. In a way it’s the red version of Fiano with the same juxtaposition of lean and ripe.

Profile: 
Immediate black fruits with a Cabernet like herbaceous character followed by dried herbs and flowers then grilled nuts and prosciutto. The nose and pallet are manic in the way they change. The wine unfurls quickly building excitement with each sip.
Body: 
Medium-bodied
Tannin: 
The tannins are all at the front of the palate with a persistence and drive provided by the naturally high tone.
Goes with: 
Beef Bolognese or Ragu …… A little in the glass and a little in the pot.
Cellaring: 
While this wine is ready for immediate drinking, it will also reward cellaring over the next five to seven years.
