From Hobo Wine Company
Suisun Valley, California
An almost extinct varietal, it's obviously hard for us to get ahold of! And it's background is uncertain either from Italy or France originally. Ripens slowly on the vine but the acid is definitely there for a world of food. It smells intense and fruity, but it's actually light and ethereal with a bright structure. There are notes of tart cherry, cola, violet, and a tannic hint of dried black tea leaf. Such a pretty wine to try with a coppa flatbread, asparagus, or chicken.
