The winery La Madonna started with 3 ha a few years ago, and has good help of the enologist Carlo Ferrini. The first Madonna Nera vintage is 2010.
The wine is relative intense and complex in the nose, with red fruit, mint and spices. On the palette Madonna Nera has a beautiful intensity, persistence, acidity and active tannins. The flavours goes towards red fruits like strawberry, cherry and wild strawberry, combined with some young balsamic vinegar, anise and blackberry.
It's a lovely wine to many different dishes, chicken spiced with curry, pasta with zucchini, the classic Tuscan pork meat sausage 'Salsiccia', pasta with tuna and pees, and finally some pieces of a beautiful Parmesan cheese!
Madonna Nera could benefit from being opened an hour before the dinner, despite it's youth.
I think I will reach out for a second one!
