From the vineyards of San Pietro in Cariano and Negrar, which have white chalky soils. A blend of Corvina 40%, Rondinella 30% and the very rare Corvinone 30%. The nose exhibits the classic rustic notes of ferrous earth, black olive, dried herbs and black cherry. Lovely bright core of acidity to match the medium body and moderate 12% alcohol. Lovely fruit flavours of cherry, blackberry and a finish of dried herb and black olive.

(2017 vintage) Corvina 40%, Rondinella 30% and Corvinone 30%. There are some wines that I don’t necessarily score (very) highly, but enjoy drinking. Here’s one. Importer: United Cellars Crisp and fresh, a bit of ‘mineral’ to the acidity along with light rusty tannin grip. Flavours are cherry, new leather and dried herb, with some liquorice richness. Tastes savoury, although there’s fruit sweetness to go with it. Easy to enjoy. 90 or 91 points, though it’s not that important.
