The wine is a blend of 70 Sangiovese and 30 Cabernet Sauvignon, a mix that brings together a warm, smoky core of spice, blackberry and black-plum fruit. It has a rich, generous feel, with a long, smooth finish.
The aromas are a mix of citrus, herb and spice. The flavors are simple but satisfying. It’s a simple wine with a perfect balance between acidity and red fruit. It’s a wine that’s ready to drink, so enjoy soon.
Here’s a dry, dry-style wine with a dry core that is a bit restricted and stalky. That gives structure and strike-through flavors of black currant and spice. It’s a simple, ready-to-drink wine that will be better from mid-2016.
The smoky, spicy aromas and flavors are still underdeveloped, but you’ll find a soft, rounded character that brings out the wine’s potential. It could be a wine to drink now.
The season is winding down and the balance is off. The intensity of the wood is still there, but it has lost the fruit. The wine tastes of earth and wood, with a burnt edge.
This is a firm, dry, dry wine with a dry core that is now balanced by the wood. It is dry and firm and needs to age for at least six years before it can be drunk.
