W hen you are presented with a producers “Rosso” here it is usually their entry level wine, and in all honesty I struggle with most. However, this one left everyone at the table in stunned silence when I first tried it.
It’s an every day wine, one to be enjoyed when you get in from work as you knock up some dinner. It’s a little bit smoky, a smooth drinker, one you will want to go back for another glass and then ask me for another bottle.
