This wine opened up with aromas of dark plum, cherry, prune, woodsmoke, chocolate, leather and earthy notes. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, very rustic with low acidity and dusty tannins. Interesting farmy, leathery character with mild dryness on the finish. For me, Rivera Il Falcone Riserva 2007 did not quit achieve the elegance of their 2006 vintage but it still an enjoyable and recommended wine.
