Enticingly fragrant...opens with heady aromas of rose, violet, new leather, truffle and a whiff of camphor. Vibrant and focused, the chiseled, elegant palate is all about finesse, delivering bright red cherry, orange zest, licorice and white pepper framed in taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it superbly balanced and fresh.
Dark, inward and intense...arrives in waves, first black fruits evolving to red, then sage and earthy minerals, followed by brown spice and, finally, hints of tobacco...velvety...complex web of fruit, minerals and tannins found within... Hints of licorice, currant and baker’s chocolate linger long. This is simply gorgeous.
Aromas of cedar, sandalwood and black cherries with some plums. Full-bodied and very chewy with lots of tannins and a fluid fruit base behind it all, providing such beauty and precision. Real purity and focus.
...shows balance and symmetry with plenty of primary intensity...bouquet opens to dark plum, dried raspberry, spice, aniseed and grilled herb...lot of Mediterranean lavender and rosemary essence...a mid-weight Brunello with aromas that prove elegant and buoyant.
A core of cherry and kirsch marks this vivid, linear red, packing strawberry, floral, sanguine, iron and tobacco notes into a slim frame. Balanced and structured, ends with a lingering impression of ripe fruit and savory elements.
...brooding with cherry and cranberry with minerally notes. Iron with a suggestion of orange skin and oak...poised cherry and raspberry palate...with real concentration and with a long vein of acidity running through it. Very long and transparent, with finely-chiselled, long tannins and amazing depth.
