(80% sangiovese and 20% merlot): Bright ruby. Smoky cherry and red berries on the nose, with notes of rose, cured meat and cracked pepper adding complexity. Weighty cherry and raspberry flavors show no rough edges and gain sweetness with air. Chewy and expansive wine with very good finishing power and lingering red fruit, floral and smoke qualities. This promising blend needs some more bottle age. Steve Clifton told me that some of the sangiovese here got the ripasso treatment.
