Classic, old world, luxurious. This is really for wine experts. On the nose, you can easily pick that it is old world. There are a lot of dirt, mud, and dried leaves going on. Midpalate, there are layers earthiness and hints of black fruits. Finish, it has a long finish. It is well balanced. There are some black fruits dancing on my palate, but the fruit flavors are not as vibrant as the earthiness and dirtiness this wine has (this is a good thing). I'm not sure if I am making sense but this puts you in a classic Italian night. I believe this wine is indeed very well made. I am 94 on this effort. Seek it out.
