Surprisingly brown-reddish brick red. Sweet ripe red fruit, floral aromas. On the palate the wine opens out to reveal the intensity, the ripeness, the fullness of fruit, the extraction with balance. Chocolate, red fruit, fresh acidity, the tannins firm, concentrated and ripe. Big, massively inky, massively fruity, extremely extracted but with great balance, nice acidity. Floral lifted notes giving lightness. Lovely new wood just peaking out around the edges. It's big, it's bold, but it's also drinker-friendly and absolutely delicious. The acidity on the finish makes you regret having to spit or not being able to have another glass - everyone will be fighting over it. Can imagine this with gnocchi with a pumpkin filling if in the north, or maybe here in Tuscany Pici with fagioli, cavolo nero and a sweet caramelised onion tomato sauce. Now I'm hungry.
