Traditionally, cooler climate years in Tuscany create elegant and ethereal high tones of fruit. The nose explodes with bright raspberries and wild berries, with some floral tones of lavender. Though a Bordeaux style blend, the palate is more Burgundian with soft elegant tannins and textures. The slightly higher than usual acids firmly frame a potpourri of blueberry and sour cherry. The fruit slowly subsides giving way to exotic spice, reminiscent of cardamom and finishing with sweet black licorice.
