About This Wine
The wine shows a brooding nose of dark berry fruit, a gamey spiciness and subtle violets. The palate is vibrant and focused, with rich, ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors and an abundance of both white and black pepper, as well as hints of cloves. The palate is weighty, yet elegant, with the perfume of the nose following through and beautifully integrated spicy tannins. Balanced and mouthwatering, with a long peppery finish.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – Deep ruby-red. Liqueur-like chocolatey grenache dominates the nose today, but fresher notes of cherry and violet emerge with air. A lovely spicy, southern-style wine with medium weight and nicely integrated acidity (3.8 pH); really nothing overripe about this wine. Finishes juicy and firmly tannic, spreading out to saturate the palate without leaving any impression of excess weight.
