TASTING NOTES:

"Bright red-ruby. Very aromatic nose of sweet spices and riper red cherry, with flashes of raspberry liqueur and strawberry jam thrown in for good measure. Enters round, luscious and with outstanding inner-mouth perfume, then risingly tannic on the classically dry, mouthcoating finish. Improves markedly in the glass, showcasing a combination of minerals and of red fruit cocktail. Aged roughly ten months in used oak tonneaux, this ought to age well. From a fifteen year old vineyard of roughly 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio in the Solicchiata area. Only 5,000 bottles made; outstanding first time wine from Calogero Statella, technical director at Tenuta delle Terre Nere."
