Review/Notes: Uncorked this one to celebrate Monday being mostly done. I was making some pasta and feeling the need for an old world red. First impressions were that this one is rather dry. It has some depth to it, which I like, but not much brightness. I would almost describe it as earthy. Probably not really a spring wine.

It was a bit tinny with the red sauce. As the bottle has been open longer and we’ve had more wine it definitely seems more full on the palate. Definitely more agreeable as the bottle wears on…
