Terre di Serrapetrona - Collequanto Vernaccia 2012 - 87 points.
In the glass a ruby ??red color with light violet hues.
In the nose peppery, spicy, with aromatic herbs that blend well with cherries, plum and blackberry.
On the palate dry, savory with tannins present but not aggressive, a good full structure and fleshy. A balanced red, not without elegance, from the wooded character.
