A fabulous Tuscan red, young and racy. Deep dark ruby in color, with focused aromas of blackberries, wood and very ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish.
...expansive nose of black currants, cherry compote, vanillin, and earth. Sweet, jammy, and opulently-textured, this expansive, concentrated, low acid wine is flashy and gorgeously-proportioned.
Dense, round and velvety on the palate, with expanding flavors.
Well mannered blend on the nose. Attractive, well mannered... it would make a good introduction to Sangiovese. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not especially long or intense but very well made.
...a memorable vintage, shows a distinction that we haven't encountered since the '93, but perhaps even since the '88...
