Offers plummy fruit, with hints of flowers, citrus and light chocolate. Medium-bodied, with a balanced and tasty palate, fine tannins and a clean finish. Structured. Best after 2009.

Lots of character here with rich aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and coffee cream... and a medium, spicy vanilla finish. Always very good.

Intensives Purpur, leicht aufgehellter Rand. Zimtzwetschgen, etwas englische Minze und feine Barriquenoten im fein-duftigen, üppigen Bouquet. Crèmig-weicher Auftakt, abgelöst von einer charaktervollen Sangiovese-Frische, Backpflaumen und Johannisbeeren, kernige, aber gut integrierte Tannine, aromatisch perfekt abgedeckt bis ins lange, von feinen Röstaromen und etwas Schwarztee begleitete Finale.
