One of Wine Spectator’s top 100 in 2019, this intriguing wine captivates with its extraordinary vital energy. Delicious wild fruits try to steal the show but rosehip and fennel add nuance to this meaty, peppery, gastronomic delight. This will be your pizza night go-to throughout the year, so don’t be shy about locking down a case.

Pair this intriguing, gastronomic red with a slice of seared tuna or an anchovy pizza.

James Suckling

Very tangy and fruity with sour-cherry and lemon character. Light body and a fruity finish. Light nectarine undertones. Drink now.

WS90

Wine Spectator

A bright, light- to medium-bodied red that's toasty on the nose, but then a pure chime of ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit rings out on the palate, accented by Earl Grey tea leaf and smoky mineral notes and layered with light tannins. Well-balanced and vibrant. Drink now through 2026.

Wine Enthusiast

You’ll find aromas of scorched earth, dark spice, roasted nut and a whiff of burnt rubber on this Nero d’Avola and Frappato blend. On the palate, smooth tannins accompany mature black cherry, dried blackberry and ground black pepper before closing on a carob note. Drink through 2021.
