Wine Maker Notes
Our 2011 Il Donato Vino Rosso is ruby red in color with rich aromas of blackberries, dates, a hint of black pepper and dark plum. Flavors of blueberry, tart cherry, pomegranate seed and an earthy minerality are carried by subtle notes of cocoa nibs through the finish. Soft, long and intensely flavored, this wine has a classicold-world terrior. Our Vino Rosso is sourced primarily from Puglia which has a dry Mediterranean climate, with moderately loose clay soils producing fine dry wine.
