Now THIS is what I want out of an Italian red. Balsamic, figs, dried cherries and tar on the nose. More the same on the tongue plus some leathery notes. And some lilacs! It is lithe yet thick, like a violet colored lightweight down comforter it will keep you warm. I poured a glass and am going to try again in an hour or so.......okay I’m coming back to it now almost two hours after. The VA has blown off more which is both good and bad depending how you look at it. Oddly the fruit seems fresher. And more. More plush ripe fruit. I’m into this but I fear it’s age made it fall off a bit faster than I surmised.
