So Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon finally got to Southern Italy, and thus comes this berry and licorice red. It’s all about color, zest, forward fruit and tannins. Lots of backbone and boldness, and some chocolaty substance to the finish.
Uva di Troia is the name of the grape, and it was grown in Puglia, in Italy's heel. It's an old grape that dependably produces a ripe, rustic wine, dry and smooth, and rich in tannins and fruit. Randall Grahm attempts to bring finesse, with some success.
