Attractive ripeness with lots of berries and currants. Fine sweet spices and some dark chocolate confers a nice plushness. Full-bodied and nicely grippy on the palate with ample tannins and a flavorful finish.
This offering from Bolgheri opens up with a nice jammy boysenberry and elderberry bouquet with hints of baking spices. On the palate, it is fresh with berry fruit compote flavors intermingled with nutmeg, clove, and touches of vanilla. It has a typical Italian wine finish of leather, tobacco, and aged balsamic.
Enticing black currant, black cherry, plum, licorice and leather aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this suave red, which is thickly textured and lively, with finely manicured tannins and a lingering finish.
