"Quiet aromas of blackberry and strawberry start off this Aglianico rosato. Tangy dark berry flavors are lifted by scrubby herbs on the medium-bodied palate, with crushed stone lifting it all up. It ends a bit astringent on the finish, but this is an overall pleasing expression of a bold rosato." -Wine Enthusiast
