Floral and lingering. Actually quite impressive. Like a walk through the forest. Wood finish.

Lazio Rosso IGT 2012, 13.5%. Bottle tasted in November 2014.
Petit Verdot grapes aged in small oak barrels.
It is quite unusual to find wines made with pure Petit Verdot, as in central Italy is just used for blends.
This was a wine fresh in the mouth, with soft tannins, and scents of black currants, but a little green. I loved it but I imagine it's not for everyone...

15/20 (84/100)

Вареные вишни, черный чай, цедра лимона, тело несколько легковатое, суховатые танины, просто.

Delicious Petit Verdot! Compares favorably with Virginia Petit Verdot vintages.

It didn't take long to open up and show a very well balanced wine. Unusual to see Petit Verdot from Italy but this was very good. Extraordinary tannins, fruit forward (big cherry/black currant) and earthy. Full-bodied. Great value.

Perfect example of how craftsmanship and proper treatment can beat any superstitions! Petit Verdot is no longer little brother of Merlot or Cabernet but  100% single player. 
The result is outstanding - elegant, full-bodied, opulent with silky tannins, deep rich crimson to purple colour. Nose is full of black fruits and berries - cherries, prunes, blueberries, figs to name a few.
 Intense, a bit smoky, black currant palate with hints of juniper turns into lingering finish with pleasant spicy white pepper notes.
