(as with the Gattera and Vigna Giachini, this was aged in 50% new barriques): Good deep red. Aromas of black raspberry, violet, mint, licorice and tobacco. Deep, layered and rich, with terrific concentration to its dark fruit, violet and oak flavors. A bit aggressive following the Vigna Giachini, but the wine's sheer thickness of texture is leavened by ripe acidity. Finishes with big, broad, ripe, palate-dusting tannins, considerable power and a hint of warmth.
