Green pepper, rather than black, on the nose with hints of thyme in the background. Some blackberry notes but no great fruit and mildly herbaceous. Still, certainly a serviceable quaff in an everyday Italian. A good wine for spaghetti or sausage and peppers. Recommended.
Billed as the largest Italian wine conference outside of Italy, VINO2010, held February 2–5 in New York City, drew hundreds of people in the wine and food sector from across the US for tastings, food samplings, and events.
