Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Concentrated and incredibly dense, intense ruby colour. The nose gives off variegated aromas that alternate from cherry to wild berry fruit, ennobled with a touch of spice: you can recognize the pepper and cinnamon. At first binding and full, the tannins blend in well with the alcohol. Long lasting taste, which expresses itself in excellent depth.

    (2004 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. At first this wine sits firmly in its extract; with air it releases aromas of dark plum and pepper, becoming plump and rich, the black cherry and plum sweetness checked by sticky tannins. A stylish Chianti for the steakhouse.
