A blend of Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Teroldego, Aglianico, and a few other grapes, across three vintages. The nose is unusual, and I have difficulty pinning it down. Neither floral nor fruity; there are hints of underbrush and menthol, but also something else I can’t place. Inky purple in the glass. The palate offers brambly blackberries, road tar, savory cumin, and slightly tart black cherries lifted by piquant acidity. The medium length finish shows drying tannins. An interesting wine, but not quite my cup of tea.

Very big wine. Lots of oak. Kind of overwhelming.
