2002 Conti Leopardi Dittajuti Rosso Conero Vigneti del Coppo - Tastes like fruit

Seems like the name of this wine in the title will be longer than my notes on it. (g)

We enjoyed the Conti Leopardi Dittajuti with a couple Neopolitan style pies at Pizzeria Picco in Larkspur, CA on Sunday night. Here's the posting -

Dark dusky fruit with some dried herbal/spicy notes and stony undertones in a medium-bodied frame, brightened with refreshing acidity. Lip-smackingly delicious with our pizza.

And it brought out this remark from "Windy": "One of the things we commented on was the earthiness of the red wines: dark purple food wines, unmistakably the product of grapes. Is it fair to complain about wines that have lost their relationship to the fruit they come from?"
