...possesses awesome balance as intricately woven layers of aromas and flavors come together in the glass. The 2006 is an especially powerful Le Vigne boasting a solid core of floral, red fruits supported by firm yet elegant tannins.
Complex aromas of red cherry, blueberry & brown spices. Full-bodied & deep with high but harmonious acidity giving focus to the red cherry, camphor & mineral. Youthfully chewy yet smooth tannins stain the palate on the long, firm finish.
Black cherry, plum, tar and licorice flavors are sweet and offset the firm structure in this red, which has a fine, spicy aftertaste. There’s an almost lush texture, and though this is balanced, it needs time to come together.
