New Releases from Southern Italy (Mar 2011)

Deep ruby. Red cherry, raspberry, mocha and spicy oak on the nose. Dense, sweet and creamy, with red berry flavors lifted by floral and mineral components. Packed with ripe flavors of red cherry, raspberry jam, tar, tobacco and minerals, this seems a bit evolved but conveys an attractive juicy quality thanks to its firm acids. The mouthcoating finish features fairly fine tannins and very good length.
