Orin Swift Locations I2
Wine AdvocateThe Non-Vintage Locations I-2 Italian Red Wine (also all 2012 fruit, but it can't be called that because of the blend) is composed of Nero D'Avola and Negroamaro from Puglia, Barbera from Piedmont, and a small percentage of Sangiovese from Tuscany. It receives vinification in large oak and spends ten months in barrel prior to bottling. It displays more acidity than the French cuvee, along with notes of wild herbs, licorice, tomato skins, black olives, red and black currants, cherries, barbecue spice and burning embers. This serious, medium to full-bodied, tasty, distinctive wine can be consumed over the next several years.
