Cincinnato Polluce Nero Buono 2018 Lazio
From Lazio, the region surrounding Rome, this is something of a rarity in that it's a straight 100% nero buono varietal, rather than the usual blend of varieties. This has bags of southern Italian charm, but avoids the trap of being at all soupy. Instead, ripe plums and spice create an impression of something quite Rhone like. Warming and complex.
