Deep black plum, ripe blackberry and rose petal aromas fill the nose of this wine. The mouth shows abundant fresh fruit, with loads of red cherry, blackberry and plummy flavors, hints of mocha, and smooth, firm tannins.
85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and Cabernet
After reading the vintner's description, I hardly recognized this wine. I can't understand how W&S gave it 92 points. It has surprisingly little nose, and reminds me of some merlots with just one note in the palate. In addition, I thought is was just a little astringent alone. Red meat softened the taste, but overwhelmed the wine. Overall, I think I can do better for less.
good taste; mellow
