91 point, Wine Enthusiast: "Prune, blackberry, violet and cooking spice aromas lead the nose. On the full-bodied palate, notes of toasted hazelnut and clove accent a black cherry core. Polished tannins provide elegant support, while a hint of mocha marks the close. "
The wine is deep ruby red with violet reflections. The scent offers layer upon layer of ripe fruit, spiced with notes of plums, cherries, violets, cocoa, cinnamon and leather. The taste is full-bodied with soft, complex tannins and a nice, long aftertaste.Costamiole is perfect for fried game or beef as well as for ripe cheeses.
