    Brown mahogany. Aromas of mature fruit, raisins, orange zest, dark florals and slightly sweet gamey aromas.  Lovely fresh acidity with fragrant delicate cherry, fragola di bosca fruit, subtle bruised fruit and raisins. First impression suggested the wine was beginning to dry out but as the wine opened in the glass it transformed into a wine with lively charm, plenty of energetic tannins, enthusiastic acidity and plenty of floral fruit. Firm but softened well integrated tannins. Deliciously fresh and vibrant with mellow ripeness.
