(aged in 20% new barriques, the rest puncheons and old Radoux ovals): Good deep red. Enticing aromas of red and darker berries, licorice, coffee and cocoa powder, with a distinct sangiovese floral quality. Sweet, dense and vibrant, with nicely integrated acidity giving definition to the sexy flavors of berries, dried herbs and flowers. I find the lift of the 2008 vintage but winemaker Chris Figgins notes that this wine's acidity is average rather than especially high.
