Cherry and herbal flavors. Mid-high alcohol and long finish.
Ripasso style, sitting on Charbono skins. Nose of chocolate covered cherry, kirsch, some plum and marionberry. Good acid on the palate. Nice soft fruit and medium tannin. Dry, but polished and rich texture. Minerality leans a touch metallic,but a lot of Sangioveses do that for me. Toasty cocoa, cherry, cranberry and plum flavors. Nice. Needs food. Toasty finish which is enjoyable. Wine has great depth. 89 pts. 5/9/13 at winery
