Blend of 70% Nero di Troia and the rest other varieties, this has medium-high intensity aromas of wet earth, dried cherry, barnyard, olive and black pepper. It's medium-full bodied on the palate and maturing quite well with dusty tannins and flavours of olive, earth, sour cherry, and sweet baking spice. Harmonious with balanced acids and long finishing. Tasted Oct/2016. Score: 90+ pts.

Quite earthy and dusty, though somewhat understated on the nose. Dried cherry and cranberry, dark plum, fig, sage, green olive, leather, dried leaves, and a touch of violet and vanilla. There is also a bit of gamey, brett character. Repeats on the palate with some sundried tomato, bitter cocoa, and clove spice. Medium-full bodied, high acidity, and firm, dusty tannins. Good length finish, with dried cherry and earth.
