Ortaia Pergola Aleatico Superiore 2013
From this winery I also tasted some other wines. Every wines has it's own signature. Also this one. This wine has a light ruby red color with a violet hue. In the nose very aromatic and complex with roses and violets, cherries, strawberries and plums. A little wood in the back. There is a good harmony between the acids and sweet tannins. Very soft and filming in the mouth. A fruit bomb of red fruit and flowers. alcohol: 14%
