Back in Milan...

Beautiful color, light red with a pink orange rim.

Drank this way too soon/fast (no decant).

Beautiful floral aromas, a welcome home to the north. Licorice underneath. Medium plus acidity, medium plus alcohol (with the nice burn).

Tannins are at medium. Finish of cherry.

94+ points

Tart cherry, massive amounts of cherry and some vanilla. Not for everyone, but light and refreshing.

2012 vintage. Great balance. Less than 100 Euro's. Amazing value.

Hit me in all the right ways. Amazing orangish brick color with some fade. Amazing nose and finish.
