This is one of the times where I hate my old webhost (setupsite) because this is one company/producer whose wines I wrote some nice reviews over.

This wine is very dry and has a lovely color that I would call more of a cross between a scarlet and a deep purple. The taste is a quenching combination of old leather with an undercurrent of black currant. It's actually interesting because this would probably go great with roasted game meats or cured meats.

This is not my favorite wine by Donnafugata, as I have had the others in Italy and can tell you that they're quite smashing.
