ASHEVILLE WINE FOCUS GROUP (RED) WINNER: APRIL

Copertino Negroamaro 2008!

   Brick red and dense, Copertino has seductive aromatics of blackberry, spice, cigar leaf and smoked meats. It is medium-bodied and surprisingly complex, displaying well-integrated layers of leather, wild berries, cedar, tar, vanilla and soft spices. The long finish lingers with dried cherry and port-like nuances.

Terlano Muller Thurgau 2015
      "In Terlano there are a number of very attractive sites in our highest and steepest vineyards, which extend up to 900 meters above sea-level, where the Müller Thurgau grape produces very elegant wines with the peach and nutmeg flavors that are typical of the variety."
                                                                        Antonio Gallani 90 Points
 
This wine works with powerful tastes including spicy, HOT and bitter.
