Just nips 90 for complexity and length. Agreed, very Iti style with nice bite to the finish

Fresh lively red fruit (think sour cherries), reminiscent of Sangiovese or Nebbiolo. Hints of herbs and smoke, though oak is all but invisible. The crisp acidity and fine tannin carry the finish. Drink over the next couple of years for the vivid fresh fruit. Nice indeed. Tasted Dec 2016.
