This is quite perfumed and with noticeable alcohol but the aromas of damp earth, cherry lozenge, sweet herbs, rosemary, and roses are classic. On the palate this has some hard tannins and bright acids that lend a mineral edge to the bitter cherry fruit. The back end picks up notes of dried citrus peel and earth which transition into a very medicinal, camphor-tinged finish that ends with a fresh strawberry finale. Classic Serralunga fruit that softens fairly quickly with air. 92pts

Aromatically this is on tonight, huge roses, tar, some minty herbs, medicinal base notes and a sweet edge of carob all come together nicely. In the mouth this starts out a bit closed, but surprisingly elegant already. the tannins build with air as does the fruit, though for the most part this is built on a cleansing astringency and wonderful medicinal notes that carry a bitter edge with them today. Gorgeously pale ruby and having already thrown a fair sediment, this might be close to it's plateau already, though with another decade of development ahead of it. Incredibly easy to drink and superbly balanced for a 14.5% wine, I'm just hoping for some additional complexity with time and perhaps more fruit as well but this is no slouch just the way it is. 91pts

AWE blind tasting - reticent nose, tight and closed but with leather, precise red fruits, a very gentle simmering raspberry sweetness, rainwater, cherry juice, rich yet very well composed with a lean yet muscular character, nice freshness in the mouth, polished tannins, a touch diffuse across the mp but with really nice purity, finishes with lift and nice grabby yet polished tannins, a very dried earthy note, very fresh with a little camphor on the finish, 90-91
