An old, trim man is this wine.
Very dark, inky purple colour. Impressive mousse and standard bead for a sparkling red, which is to say there is very little. Great palate of rich plum, raspberry, dark chocolate and vanilla. Great length and fantastic balance. Perfect sweetness.
Yes it’s pricey, but it’s also damn good. One of the best sparkling reds on the market. I want to say that I prefer the Majella, but I don’t know if I do.
