Winemaker Notes

Notably young, deep color, unburdened by excessive time in oak. Complex aromas, initially of red fruit and licorice with a discrete hint of vanilla; a minute or two of patience is rewarded by aromas of coffee, hazelnut, and plum jam. Its softness is well balanced on the palate; it is silky and caressing, giving the sensation of fullness and tone. The long finish is marked by notes of spice and jamminess, a sign of greatness to come.

Great with game, red meats, roasts, hearty stews and rich powerful cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Dark ruby-garnet. Aromas of blackberry, coffee bean and meat. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Big and racy. Still needs some bottle age.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
The Mariani family has produced a hugely concentrated, wood-dominated wine with powerful smoky aromas and concentrated black, ripe, chunky fruit. It's heavy on the berries, both in the rustic, brambly nose and on the deep, tight, classy palate. Toasty flavors come through the fruit, but these will soften and blend in with aging.
