Showed savory notes on the nose with green olive, chalk dust and a hint of red fruit. The palate was medium bodied and showed raspberry, confectioners sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Altogether an enjoyable any day wine.

bald, lacking flavors. It tasted watered down although it smells a little of minerality and grape juice. Dry.

Again, a nice tuscan blend that we enjoyed. Not quite as much as Argiano's NC, however still a full bodied, smooth blend with great flavor. $19.95 VW

Intensives, glänzendes Rosa. Reife Himbeeren und rote Kirschen in der verführerischen Nase, auch eine leicht florale Note. Sanft fliessend im Gaumen, wiederum von einer herrlich rotbeerigen Note dominiert, auch Erdbeeren, gut unterstützende Säure, stattliche Abgangslänge.

The eye is first impressed by a dense, violet-flecked purple red, and the nose is no less complex, releasing clean-edged impressions of dark cherry, wild strawberries, and raspberries, attractively complemented by spicy nuances of roasted espresso bean, cocoa, baker's chocolate, and vanilla. The palate shows alcoholic warmth, silky texture, and remarkable depth, with a mouth-filling suite of fine-grained tannins. The lengthy finish is subtly aromatic, with tasty notes of fruit in evidence.

The wine appears a dense, almost opaque purple-red, but of striking luminosity. Intense, rich draughts of red berry fruit lead off on the nose, with raspberry and wild strawberry well in evidence, followed closely by rich blackberry and dark cherry. This impressive, multi-layered bouquet closes with spicier impressions of cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. The palate is equally impressive for its warmth, velvet smoothness, and complex balance, where dense but supple tannins are already well integrated into the structure. A tasty, nervy acidity fuels a lengthy progression, and it concludes with lovely fruit in a final crescendo.

Kräftiges Purpur, violette Reflexe. Köstliche schwarze Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Himbeeren vereinen sich im Bouquet mit Kaffee- und Kakaonoten. Im Gaumen weich und von einer schönen Wärme, mit ausgesprochen eleganten Tanninen ausgestattet, aromatischer und intensiver Abgang von ausgezeichneter Länge.

Dichtes Purpurrot. Kleine, wilde Erdbeeren und Himbeeren in der offenen Nase, unterlegt von delikaten Vanillenoten und etwas Zimtwürze. Warmer, samtiger Gaumen nach roten Beeren, in schöner Harmonie zu den Röstaromen, Milchschokolade; insgesamt sehr eindrucksvoll und weich fliessend, erstklassige Tanninqualität und ein komplexes, langes Finale.
