Very modern and ripe with a nose of cinnamon, spice and red plums. Good structure overall and very Merlot like. Decanted but could definitely use some bottle age. Not quite sure what I think of this wine. Maybe slightly overrated

great nose from the start. bit much on the mouth for an hour or so. decant to hit your sweet spot. Not gonna open another for awhile yet. historically these seem better with a decade+. unlikely to wait five years though. that’d be just crazy:-)

Unreal. Never had a 100% Merlot from Italy. Nearly perfect wine.
