Dark in colour with a deep red/purple hue. Showing aromas of black cherries and dried herbs, this wine expresses great intensity and shows the warmth of the vintage. With a round mid-palate showing layers of fruit and spice, it has an interesting black tea edge and some bitter orange (chinotto) in the finish. A very stylish and complex wine with great age ability.
