It was giving me a hint of orange in the aroma.
By holding the stem of the glass, tipping the glass downward a bit, and holding a white napkin beneath it, you can really see the color and density of the wine.
This was apparent in the next two wines.
After being served a delicious dish of Penne alla Carbonara bursting with flavor, we were served a red Terrae D'Itrj.
As we tipped our glasses, we could see the translucency of the liquid meaning it is not deep and not concentrated.
They use the process of refermentation to make this kind of wine.
The next red was a Sangiovese made of the most important grape.
This one was much more concentrated than the previous red in that you could see the density in the dark color when tipping the glass over the napkin.
You could see your finger through the Terrae D'Itri, but the Sangiovese was much deeper.
It was more of a natural, sweet wine, but it also had a very bitter aftertaste that tingled my tongue.
The sixth and final wine was a dessert wine that gives the sweet ending to an explosion of flavor in my mouth.
I felt like I was biting into a sugar cube as the liquid hit my tongue.
It was a very sweet surprise to finish off the night.
Although you must pace yourself with this wine as it is 15% alcohol.
The alcohol is masked by the sweet sensation.
