Color of shades of purple with a touch of ruby, a bit cloudy. Nose of crayon, spice, dark fruits like cherry, vanilla, ripe grapes, a bit flowering note, and a bit minty. Taste is round and polished, slightly sweet dark fruits, with milky chocolate note, oaky vanilla, soft tannins, ripe grapes again, a bit spice and minty, quite silky and smooth. Aftertaste shows some more zest. A crowd pleaser but a bit too sweet for me.

Full-bodied, almost syrupy Tuscan blend (Sangiovese) with bitter cherry notes, mild tannin and acidity, and a smooth finish (WSJ)

Dark ruby, floral scents. Well balanced, light tannin, slight acidity, long smooth finish. Good drinking, accompanied a home-made pasty - excellent.
