A very intense ruby red wine with rich aromas of blueberry, currant, blackberry, and sour cherry that mingle nicely with hints of violet and spicier notes of cardamom, star anise, tobacco, and liquorice. Impressions of coffee, cocoa, and minerals complete the bouquet. The entry on the palate is lavish with elegantly integrated tannins. The wine is full bodied, well structured, and reveals distinctive characteristics of the Montalcino region. The finish is lengthy and pleasingly intense.
