CACCIALEPRE

Deep royal magenta of hue, this wine’s gentle blackberry-cranberry aromas feed nicely through to a deceptively juicy but satisfying, smooth-textured palate. With its velvety tannins and mouth filling berriness one is almost put in mind of fruit-and-nut chocolate – dark, with plenty of fat luscious raisins in the mix. Smooth as silk as it glides down the throat, but in no way tiring thanks to the fresh acidity, you’ll want to take another good gulp pretty soon. My advice: Go for it.
