The nose screams Southern Italian. Ripe red fruits and a load of spice like cinnamon and cardamom and all sorts of floral bouquet. 9 years old. Tasting beautiful.

Another visit to this fantastic value wine, my old tasting note holds, with a prolonged drinking window. This wine is very well balanced and was already enjoyable with no decanting which is great :-) it has deep red color, on the nose a festival of black fruits, cherry, raisins, chocolate, with a touch of spices such as cinnamon and sweet paprika, the body is full rich round and balanced with sweet acidity, and a lingering finish. My score 89, drink to 2018

Good blend from Umbria, definitely peculiar. Sangiovese and Canaiolo grapes, as if in a Tuscan Chianti. All in all a good wine, but don't expect too much. Lacks true depth and complexity.

Full body and very smooth once it opens up. Hint of spice on the finish. 21st anniversary at Truluck's

Pretty good. Something interesting going on, probably from whatever was blended in with the Sangiovese. At the wine museum in torgiano.
