Colli Piacentini DOCG, Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Wines from Emilia-Romagna rarely make it to the Ontario market, especially examples made by small, quality-obsessed producers like Luretta. The winery farms organically/bio-dynamically and severely restricts yields to produce structured,
powerful wines that still retain Italian style and elegance. This wine is a blockbuster, with intense flavours of black cherry, ripe plum, blackberry and licorice. The palate is full with impressive depth, framed by lovely, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity.
