Wine Enthusiast March 2007 - Platinum Score!

The southern region of Campania delivers a first-rate Merlot that is dense, concentrated, chewy and packed tight wih red cherry, Indian spice, chopped mint and roasted espresso bean. But there is also a subtle and delicate floral tone recalling blue violet that adds to its wonderful complexity. Silky smooth on the palate, this wine is full of nuances and finesse.
