Good medium red with an amber edge. Distinctly backward nose hints at dark raspberry and menthol; much less showy today than La Serra. Then rich, chewy, sweet and dense in the mouth, with bound-up flavors of dark fruits and camphor. Considerably deeper and more structured than La Serra, but these tannins will also require substantial bottle aging. Marcarini continues to employ a leisurely traditional maceration lasting 40 days, says director Manuel Marchetti, using a continuous and very gentle spray to keep the cap wet.
