Item no. 101201
Full bodied, with a generous, fruity core, where the notes of cherries and small berry fruits intertwine with sensations of Mediterranean herbs, such as rosemary and thyme, and hints of oak. The alcohol is well-integrated in the structure and the tannins are impressive, yet round and soft. The aftertaste is very long and reminiscent of violets, nutmeg, plums, and sweet tobacco.
The nose is a little closed to begin but with coaxing mute black cherry, pepper and tobacco aromas begin to emerge. The palate is tightly knit with medium to firm, fine tannins and a high level of acidity. Great concentration building in the mouth. Long finish. Drink now to 2014. Tasted April 2009.
There’s a very plush and velvety quality to this wine that is enhanced by aromas of red berry, pipe tobacco, natural rubber and exotic spice. The wine has a ripe, fruit-forward personality and a smooth, velvety finish that is broad, powerful and long lasting. Large percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon back the Sangiovese.
