Niccolo V. 2015 – Colli di Luna Rosso, Italy

A hint of black rubber and licorice, with black and red fruit on the nose.  A light-bodied, fruit burst on the front end with blackberries and strawberries in the lead.  Fades quickly and smoothly into a light tannin finish, with echoes of leather and tobacco.  This went great with Ligurian traditional food, the octopus in particular.  I drank about half the bottle and shared the rest with the staff at Il Borgo di Campi’s restaurant outside of Riomaggiore in Cinque Terra, Italy.
