Absolutely delicious, this smooth, full-bodied red delivers juicy blackberry, baked plum and ripe Marasca cherry interwoven with tobacco and licorice. Balsamic notes of cedar and camphor add depth while firm but polished tannins lend structure and seamless support. It's already enjoyable but will also offer years of pleasure. Drink through 2029.

The wine reveals a medium dark ruby color with dried cherry and cassis. There is richness and concentration here, and the wine drinks like the proverbial baby Brunello (including a powerful 14.5% alcohol). You'd do well to serve it with pici pasta with a slow-simmered sauce made with game meat. Unlike most of its peers, this wine flaunts ample structure and depth. 2022 - 2027.
