"The first thing that stands out on the 2018 Ca'Liptra Marche Rosso Amistà is the color, a translucent ruby, which is completely unexpected and intriguing for a blend that's primarily Montepulciano with up to 10% Sangiovese. Yet as soon as I put my nose to this glass, I can see that we have something quite unique here from start to finish, as a perfumed display of peppery herbs gives way to ripe strawberry, crushed stone and undergrowth. It then floods the palate silky textures, ushering in sweet spices and floral-laced fruits with a buzz of vibrant acids. The finish is fresh and energetic, coating the senses in remnants of spiced berries with inner florals echoing throughout. What an incredibly pretty wine."
