The wine is very dark - almost no light gets through when held to a lamp. Aromas of dark fruit and the subtle sense of earth make for an underplayed nose. On the palate, plums and blackberries meet minerals and black olives for a game of "sweet or savory." The match is a draw. The tannins are temperate and the acidity makes the mouth water.

Surprise! What a treat. Beautiful rosy color and bright red fruit aroma. But also some leather which drives it across the palate with soft acid and tannins. I could sip this on my patio in Tuscany all day long.

Hoffe ich habe eine funky bottle erwischt. Hatte mehr von dem Wein erwartet. Er ist zurückhaltend in der Frucht und gefühlt schon gereift. Habe aus Sizilien etwas mehr Schmelz und mundfülle erwartet. 24 Stunden nach der Öffnung ist er etwas zugänglicher.

Earthty nose, dark fruit and pepper finish; very smooth. Great wine!

Intense dark fruit on the nose followed by black currant, dark cherry flavors on the palate. Long persistent finish with an almost creamy finish.
