    February 9, 2019 - Latour Restaurant @ Crystal Springs Resort with CBCC wine group.

    Forth wine of the night. Big viscous and light cherry liquor. Mostly an after dinner drink with a light alcohol essence to it. Resembles a sweet port except made with cherries.

    August 18, 2018 - Ordered on a lark at a restaurant because I'd never heard of it. It was listed as vernaccia de serrapetrona secco, but that appears to be a different wine. In any case, I'm glad I was served this, because it is an absolute revelation. Deep purple color, cherry, raspberry, rosemary, sage on the nose. The herbal bouquet was captivating and in balance. Full bodied and dense. Tastes like a passito, but with none of the rough edges that are customary.

    This wine is a reminder that around every corner in Italy, a remarkable surprise awaits.

    June 5, 2015 - Maison Kayser - The Brad Kane Experience; 6/2/2015-6/6/2015: A cherry "wine" from Marche. 30% of cherry blended into a red wine base. 89 points Galoni. I cannot rate this because...it was so out of the blue! boysenberry spoon fruit. sweet ripe though not totally cloying. the table came up with "Dannon Yogurt fruit on the bottom" and "Chinese five spice". the finish had a savory/sweet note. Interesting. may be fun to try with chocolate.

    December 25, 2011 - Served with cookies at Christmas. Wonderful treat, super cherry flavors. Not too sweet; will consume again. Something different.
