Well, it's an ordinary CC nose, with tart cherry fruit, roasted herbs and a faint whiff of oak. Just short of medium-bodied where unripe tannins and slightly diluted flavors leaves the finish clipped and boring.

Tannic af (I recommend letting it breathe a bit before digging in). Yet smooth. Boozy & packed with ripe red berries.

Tart unripe red fruit. Also getting citrus on the nose. I swear it's orange.

Quite forward and doesn't sustain. Not bad though and rather fun to have from mag, all the better because of the Waitrose generosity this year.

Typical but well made Italian red. Light and pleasant flavours. Good on its own but also with food. Probably bad value for money at the non discounted price.
