Aromas of ripe red berry fruit with notes of black cherry, cedar and dried flowers. The palate shows depth of flavour with ripe fruit and balanced mineral and cedar notes, finishing with good length and chalky tannins. Enjoy with a ragu pasta and red meat dishes.

Great work, lovely accuracy and charm, this is a fascinating Giachini and I cannot wait to drink it as opposed to taste it in a few years. Shows its typical pliant personality. Ripe red berry fruit, cedar, dried flowers, mint and spice fill out its mid.weight frame nicely. There's lovely depth here. Deep aromas of very ripe, crushed black cheries and polished wood. It is intense with a full-bodied palate, with a blend of oak and fruit tannins that provides a solid framework for the persistent, ripe-fruit and mineral flavors.
