WA 90 - "The lastest in Orin Swift superstar Dave Phinney's Locations line-up, I-1, comes from Italy. The wine is a blend of A blend of Negroamaro, Nero dメAvola, Barbera, and native varietals from Puglia and spends 10 months in barrel before release."


WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The Non-Vintage Locations 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."

Winemaker Notes - "Revealing an attractive color spectrum of crimson and scarlet with a slight magenta band on the rim, the wine explodes with aromas of macerated raspberries, dried lavender, plum tart, and toasty oak accents. The palate is immediately hit with super lush flavors of ripe berries and spice, supported with a dense core that has just the right amount of characteristic acidity. The tannins are already velvety and soft which provide for a lingering finish with hints of minerality and some herbal notes." 14.5% ABV.
