Appearance: Dark garnet
Aroma: Fragrance of dark cherry, tar, rose, earth, and spices
Palate: Fine and muscular tannins. Powerful and kind of dense. Deep and juicy fruits with juiciness. Playful acidity.

Quality terrior and production technique from gorgeous vintage without doubt, this is. The herbal and floral notes are extremely attractive. Though it is a kind for ageing, it is difficult also to keep hands off now. Cellaring for a few years should be interesting. Looking forward to next tasting in a few years: sniffing in particular. Grazia!!!!!
