A nice cab, upfront chewy tannins, with jammy cherry, strawberry, tobacco/cigar box notes.

Blackberry, cassis, vanilla, eucalyptus, raspberry, oak, plum and dried sage. Great structure and moderate tannins.

2012 vintage drank in september 2017. WoW this really opened up after a few hours of decanting. Lush in cherries, tobaco, cacao, cinnamon, spices, great wine. On the third night most of the fruit was gone but it was still very powerfull.

This is a clean, clear, dry, translucent, ruby colored, full body Bolgheri. Moderate plus tannins, acidity and alcohol 14% ABV. Aromas and flavors of violets, blackberry jam on medium toasted bread served with black coffee. This is a beautiful wine! Paired well with lasagna with ricotta, mozzarella and Parmigiano Reggiano. A new favorite.
