Bright and beautiful deep red.
First aroma: black olive, olive oil, meat, barrel, red flowers like lily.
Second Scent: tallow, butter, chocolate, walnuts, cashew nuts, pistachio, rye bread.
Mid note: dried fruits, dried plums, several berries.
Light sweet and juicy acid attack, mid palate come with good body, comfortable bitterness and tannin, long finish.

Smooth and hiring of complexity but we drank the bottle at a great Italian restaurant with no time for it to breath. The Nebbiolo by the glass was better maybe because it had time to breath.
