93 POINTS. “I enjoy tasting Italianesque blends on these shores. They, among few other options, are the future. Given the 82% nero and 18% negroamaro, a bipartisan love of both Puglia and Sicily seems the inspiration. And a delicious one at that. Delicious because it tucks in the portent of jammy fruit behind a veneer of dusty, detailed tannins; just palpable enough. Scents of blood orange, black plum, root spice, violet, anise and a whiff of amari flow long and plush. Delicious wine.” ~ 2021 Halliday Wine Companion. Ned Goodwin.
