Miren 7.5. Acido pero no mucho. Suave en el paladar y la boca.

Meaty nose featuring cherry, cinnamon, gunpowder, clove, and oak. The palate offers more cherry with heavy spices notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and oak. Medium tannin and high acid. A minor flaw is that is run slightly hot with medium plus to high alcohol.

Dramatically different from the 2017 Fontodi yesterday. Less aromatic, less bright, less cherry. This is thicker, smoother, earthier. More blackberry than red cherry. More woody. Tannins are very soft but very prominent in the flavor profile adding a bitterness.

Very dry and dusty, sour (cherry). Hint of clove on the finish. Not great for the price.
