It’s a nice little wine with great, humorous packaging (similar irreverence to the Goats do Roam range from South Africa). Lightly spicy, not at all sweet (as many a Californian wine can be) and surprisingly drinkable and food friendly. Not a superlative match with the Pork with Apples and Chestnuts (a white would have been my ideal) but interesting. Style-wise the Italian edge materialises with tannins and acidity more than welcoming with an Italian-food-friendly stance.
Medium bodied. Alcohol 13.5%.
Scribblings Rating – 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]
