Not your typical Vino Nobile, there are notes of Sultana raisin, plum pie and cassis on the nose, along with some intriguing savoury aromas. On the palate, it is lush and expressive. The dried fruits are there, but there is some raspberry and sour cherry elements as well. Underlying it all is a wealth of mouthwatering acid tingle and some marked but supple tannins. Enjoyable now, this will reward some mid-term cellaring.
