This is very dense and tight with fantastic tannin texture and great depth and structure. Superb young wine. Full and muscular with finesse.
A powerful version, with a coating of toasty, vanilla-accented oak wrapped around blackberry and black plum flavors. Shows a hint of tar, and the tannins are assertive now, yet this stays vibrant and long. Better with air, but still a unique style. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 900 cases imported.
The wine greets the eye with a dark ruby, then unfurls a forceful, complex bouquet of remarkable depth, characterised by rich notes of wild blackberry and blackcurrant. Delicate hints of spicy clove and black pepper enliven the background, and subtle impressions of black liquorice and balsam gradually make their presence felt as well, creating an aromatic amalgam of enviable richness. The palate opens generous and full-volumed, with ripe tannins that enfold the mouth in their velvety softness, while the near-endless aromatic progression is enhanced by a hint of smokiness through its entire length.
