Deep ruby red. On the nose it is intense and complex with notes of spices, mint, and chocolate. On the palate the wine, savory and long, is full-bodied and round with supple and velvety tannins. Excellent with meat dishes, cold cuts, and ripe cheese.

The 2016 Ornello is once again the hidden gem in this lineup in 2016. Rich and boisterous on the palate, the 2016 offers up serious resonance. The blend of Sangioveto, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah works especially well here. Dark cherry, chocolate, spice and licorice build into the ample, creamy finish. If I could only choose one wine from this range to drink, it would be the Ornello without question.

Fresh, packed with black cherry and blackberry flavors, this red is polished and dense. Licorice, spice and tar accents add interest as the aftertaste lingers. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 4,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
