I'm sending the rest to my parents to drink. Ripe, smooth, & but not a lot of personality/complexity. 15% alc — a month ago
On one side well made with pretty aromatics, integrated tannin & balance. On the other hand, now 8yrs old with diminished fruit, the EtOH gets in the way & disrupts the point of Rosso- pretty bright fruit. Would have liked to drink this a few years ago. 14.5% - balance with alc was better on day 2. — 4 months ago
My last bottle- what a great value. Beautiful aromas ranging from floral to bacon, cardamom, cinnamon spice, red licorice, & vanilla extract. The balance is elegant & not over done.....even with 14% alcohol. Fruit at this point has become sweet plum like, with dry tannin that asks/begs for food. — 4 months ago
