Tasting Notes

Agape 2016 from Daniele Ricci has a nice ruby colour.

On the nose it’s fruity and round. Balanced and elegant.

The mouthfeel is round and lovely with elegant, integrated tannins. On the palate the fruity note is back, juicy yet classy.

The finish is long.

Croatina

Varietal

Croatina is a red Italian wine grape variety grown primarily in Lombardy’s Oltrep Pavese region and Emilia Romagna’s Province of Piacenza, but also in parts of Piedmont and Veneto. This variety is known as ‘Bonarda’ in the Oltrep Pavese, the hills of Piacenza, Cisterna d’Asti and San Damiano d’Asti, and Roero. It should not be confused, however, with the Bonarda piemontese, which is a completely different vine. It is also combined with Nebbiolo in the wines of Gattinara and Ghemme in Piedmont.
