Eyes: Light + to Medium bodied. Ruby / purple core trailing slightly to the edge of the glass.
Bouquet: Plum, violet with hints of cooked meat, spice, hard raspberry candy and clay.
Palate: Medium bodied with a round, elegant mouth feel. Notes of plum, cherry and flowers are carried by medium acidity and polished tannins. Despite carrying 14.5% ABV, there is absolutely nothing out of place here with the entire drinking experience being harmonious and pure. The length on the finish sails for minutes.
Conclusion: Add this wine to the great Tuscan Merlots like those from Tua Rita, Petrolo and Ornellaia at a savings of at least 30% per bottle. Superb now, this will reward 7 to 10 years of cellar time if you can wait. — 9 years ago

On rhe palate is red cherry, raspberry, blackberry, red currant, cassis, wild herbs, spice, pencil shavings and earth.
This wine is full bodied supple and very delicious medium + to high acidity and medium + to high firm sandy mouthcoating tannins that leave you with a long red and black fruit herbaceous finish. A new week again is upon us with many new and exciting challenges. Lets meet these challenges head on and make it a fruitful experience. Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy the week.
