My Rating 87 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, bell pepper, wood, licorice, peppercorn, spices, green vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, earth, wet leaves and light vanilla.
Medium to full bodied, and soft, with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, light vanilla, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, peppercorn, spices and green vegetables.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This nice red wine from the north of Italy is well balanced with nice complexity. Some even call it a baby Amarone. Shows a soft mouthfeel with nice structure, earthy nose and a fruity mid palate.
This 4 year old is drinking nicely now, but it’s not going to be that fruity in a year from now.
Better after 90 minutes in a decanter. Really evolved every 20 minutes.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
