IL FIUME DI LAVA 'Il Fiume Di Lava' 2007

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on this small production gem that comes from Andrea Franchetti's estate in the foothills of Mt. Etna you will find this 100% Petite Verdot with beautiful balance of power, finesse, and elegance. Rich sweet black fruits, vanilla bean, smoke, lavender and some licorice are just some of the nuances that leap from the glass. The full-bodied frame is built around round polished tannins leading to a super long finish that you have to chew your way through. This is one of the best values we have come across in a long time.
