It's only wine but I like it

Certainly lighter than many aglianico and fresher too, made in a less oxidative style than we are accustomed to from the grape/region. Crisp cherry fruit, currants and a bit of spice, finishing with fairly light tannin and a citrusy note that almost calls to mind Riesling (as odd as that sounds). Not quite what I was expecting but an enjoyable wine and easy rec at $15. Tasted Feb 2019.
