Ruby red with dark, purplish highlights precedes a nose exceptional for its depth and breadth, offering a strikingly rich and diverse mosaic of aromas. A complex of black cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant finds a beautiful foil in spicier notes of roasted coffee beans, bitter chocolate, tobacco leaf, and essence of vanilla. All of the elements blend beautifully together to create an impressive, already-evolved bouquet.
"Intense aromas of currant, raisin and licorice, with hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a powerful currant, blackberry and mineral aftertaste. Dense, and all in reserve. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2013."
Beautiful wine - full bodied, velvety finish - great fruit and mineral aftertaste - very much like the 2006 Monte Antico Rosso
