The nose is a peculiar mix of floral/meaty notes with bits of black fruit and coffee aromas. The attack is similar with resiny, licorice, black fruit and bitter espresso notes.
Traditionally, cooler climate years in Tuscany create elegant and ethereal high tones of fruit. The nose explodes with bright raspberries and wild berries, with some floral tones of lavender. Though a Bordeaux style blend, the palate is more Burgundian with soft elegant tannins and textures. The slightly higher than usual acids firmly frame a potpourri of blueberry and sour cherry. The fruit slowly subsides giving way to exotic spice, reminiscent of cardamom and finishing with sweet black licorice.
