Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.
On the nose black currants, blueberries, light wood, earth, forest floor, tobacco, vegetables, Mediterranean spices, wet leaves, coffee, black pepper, over ripen cherries, vinaigrette and leather.
Full-bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and fat legs.
Dry on the palate with stewed blackberries, ripped black currants, licorice, earth, wood, light vanilla, Mediterranean spices, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates and wet leaves.
Long tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice surprise. This is a very tasty Italian Super Tuscan. Tastes very much like a 20 year old Cabernet based Bordeaux blend from California.
Over the hill by now, but very interesting with great complexity and a yummy mouthfeel. Spicy with lots of earth notes and vegetables.
