(a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and aglianico): Saturated medium-red. Tangy red cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by expressive musky soil tones and fresh flowers. Sweet, fruity and vibrant, with flavors of red cherry, black pepper and dried flowers complicated by a saline nuance. Finishes very long and brisk, with excellent grip and fine-grained tannins. This is one of the best Montevetrano wines in many years, with really lovely, juicy energy. Perhaps having included a little more aglianico than usual has helped?
