"La Segreta Rosso literally translates into "The Red Secret". I'm unsure if the secret is the blend of the wine, but if it is, it's a fairly well known secret. Made with 60% Nero D'Avola, 20% merlot and 20% Syrah grapes, you can imagine the punch that this wine should have as far as tannins are concerned. Eyes: The wine has a dark violet color at it's core, but turns a nice cherry red at its rim. Giving it a quick swirl shows the wine to be very viscous, hanging on the side of the glass like a red velvet curtain. When the legs do appear, they fall slowly and purposefully. Nose: A quick whiff brings forth a strong alcoholic aroma, but not in a negative sense. Beneath that, a bit of menthol, or so it seems. Taste: Others have tasted strong fruits, and I suppose that's correct. Currants is apparent, but I couldn't place anything else. There's a strong peppery taste here, but not as much as in a Chianti Classico. The taste holds the tongue well, as the astringency of the wine keeps the taste buds alert. "
