This midnight purple colored blend from Italy opens with a new leather and black cherry bouquet with hints of espresso, triple sec and violet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced round and supple. The flavor profile is a stone dust and red plum blend with notes of cedar and tart cranberry. I also detected hints of cherry and violets. The finish is dry and its refined dusty tannins and flavors drift away nicely
Ultra fresh juicy cherries with more delicate aromas of violets and rose petals on the nose roll onto a palate rich with more cherries and berries balanced by earthy, astringent notes of soil, branches and roots and a finish of bitter cocoa and anise
An unctuous, umami blend of hot tar, balsamic vinegar and wild herbs on the nose, with a crack of black pepper before blackberries flood in. More pepper and crushed stones on the palate insist on the savory and austere elements right now, but the fruit promises to mature and offer a truly luxurious experience with time
The nose is primarily herbaceous, with notes of sagebrush, leaves, cedar and soil, but varied undertones of plums, cherries and cured meat keep you on your toes. On the palate, the meatiness swells above the still fresh and savory herbs before an elegant, bittersweet finish.
Fruity, floral aromas of dried cherries, raspberries and violets on the nose open up into more savory notes of pencil shavings and hot tar before a palate of more mixed berries rolls over savory, earthy notes, with a hint of orange pith adding astringency through a long, umami-rich finish.
