Conti Sertoli Salis 2004 Terrazze Retiche de Sondrio IGT Il Saloncello

Dark purple maroon color.

Cherry, cassis, and raspberry smells, some new oak.

Soft cherry/berry flavor at the beginining, acid builds to the end. Oh! Isn't food-friendly just what wine ought to be?

Excellent medium-to-full-bodied bottle for $24.99. If you'd asked for my favorite red six months ago I might have named Barbera. Now, though, Nebbiolo is coming up fast.
