Plush and fruity with rich black cherries, redcurrants and dark chocolate. A pleasant, medium-bodied merlot with silky, pastry-like tannins on the palate, together with black cherries and black olives. Quite resolved, with fluffy, plummy fruit and a long, delicate finish, showing immediate drinkability. A textbook merlot, mostly from Marchigue with around 10% cabernet sauvignon in the blend.

Aromas of black olives and dark berries follow through to a medium body. Firm tannins. Slightly lean finish.

Lots of green olives and currants with tile and stone character. Full to medium body with firm, juicy tannins and a flavorful finish.
