Gary's tasting notes

Kirsch and cassis coming through on the nose, which is very pure and juicy. Spectacular mouthfeel, which is jammy with blueberry fruit and tobacco, though not over-sugarfied. This possesses that great structure that contains its sweet fruit really well. This wine is phenomenal and downright pure! When I find a wine like this... when I find a wine with this much power, that has the elegance to confuse somebody for being full bodied... it makes for the modern Italian red wine style done right.
