Terre di Serrapetrona – Robbione 2010 - 88 points.
In the glass a ruby red color, inpenetrable with garnet hues. In the nose aromas earthy, rough with hints of red fruit, cherries, plums, balsamic, tobacco and black pepper with some hints of raisin. On the palate complex, full bodied which starts spicy with rosemary followed by red fruit with good acidity and soft tannins. The wine ends with soft wood and licorice and pepper with enough freshness. A little bit Amarone style!
